HOW TO PLANT YOUR NATIVE FLAG FOR MIAMI BEACH EARTH DAY
1. Students and faculty, organizations, businesses, and individuals are encouraged to make their
Native Flags out of recycled materials, secure to a pole for ‘beach’ planting, and bring it to
the event. The City’s Parks and Recreation Department will also organize flag-painting stations
to help make a flag during the event.
2. At 4PM, everyone who has a flag will work to the shoreline, pledge
to engage in an eco-action to support our environment, plant their flag
on the sand, and proclaim: “I hereby reclaim myself for nature.”
3. At 4:30PM, everyone will uproot their flag and participate in the parade.
4. Participants will be able to upload their photos and post their eco-actions
