Baynanza 2016

Baynanza 2016

Baynanza is a celebration of Biscayne Bay and its significance as one of our most important ecological systems in South Florida. While Baynanza includes more than 25 great events throughout March and April, the event that has become nearly synonymous with this celebration is the Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day.

This year, the Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day was celebrated on April 16, where thousands of volunteers came together to clean up the shoreline.

Baynanza 2017

The date for Baynanza 2017 has slipped out! It will be held on Earth Day, Saturday April 22, 2017! Stay tuned for more information.

The early 1980s marked the beginning of a monumental effort by Miami-Dade County to save Biscayne Bay. The Bay was suffering from pollution and the marine environment of the Bay was in steep decline. Baynanza was created as part of a larger effort to save the bay.
