Thousands of volunteers will participate in Baynanza, the largest shoreline cleanup in South Florida

MIAMI (April 11, 2016)

Residents are invited to be part of the largest shoreline cleanup in South Florida, the Baynanza Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day on Saturday, April 16, 2016.  Now in its 34th year, this event brings together the community to help restore and clean Biscayne Bay’s shoreline at more than 20 locations.  Volunteers at all the sites will receive a free commemorative T-shirt, and community service hours are available to all students that participate. There will also be entertainment, music, food and engaging environmental activities for the volunteers to enjoy at this year’s main cleanup site, Morningside Park, 750 NE 55 Terrace, Miami, FL 33137.

The Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources, Division of Environmental Resources Management, organizes this event with contributions from sponsors and other County agencies every year in April. Baynanza is Miami-Dade’s way of celebrating the environment and inviting the community to learn how to protect it while having a great time.  Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day is one of the highlights among many environmental activities that take place in March and April as part of Baynanza.

More information is available at the Baynanza website.
