Miami FL - Commissioner Audrey M. Edmonson and staff participated in Baynanza 2014 by helping clean up an island in Biscayne Bay east of Quayside Towers on April 26, 2014.  They joined staff from Miami-Dade County Department of Environmental Resources Management and thousands of volunteers in removing tons of trash from shorelines and nearby islands of Biscayne Bay at 23 different clean-up sites.  The event marked the 32nd year that county residents and visitors joined forces to help clean and restore Biscayne Bay, one of South Florida’s most precious resources.
