Vice Chairwoman Audrey M. Edmonson and her staff worked to keep District 3 green during Baynanza 2011 on Sunday, April 17, 2011. Vice Chairwoman Edmonson visited Pelican Harbor, Morningside Park, and Legion Park to pick up trash and preserve the environment.

Baynanza is a fun-filled, six-week-long extravaganza that celebrates one of our most precious natural resources, Biscayne Bay, and its surroundings. While Baynanza includes approximately 35 great events throughout March and April, the event that has become nearly synonymous with this celebration is the Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day. This year drew more than 7,500 volunteers out to the shores and islands of the bay.

"Every year, my staff and I join thousands of volunteers to do our part to keep Miami-Dade looking beautiful for generations to come," said Vice Chairwoman Edmonson.
