During the annual Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day in April thousands of community participants come out to the shores and islands of Biscayne Bay.

Participants are eligible to receive community service hours. For more information, call 305-372-6784.

The Miami-Dade County Mooring Buoy Program depends on donations and support of local schools, individuals, groups and corporations, for continued maintenance of buoys. In turn, this increases visibility of natural and artificial reefs to be protected.
