Celebrate Earth Day at the 37th Annual Baynanza Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day on Saturday, April 13

MIAMI ( April 11, 2019 )

Residents are invited to be part of the largest shoreline cleanup in South Florida, the Baynanza Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day, on Saturday, April 13, 2019, from 9 a.m. to noon at various locations throughout Miami-Dade County.

Baynanza, now in its 37th year, will bring 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, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, 3251 South Miami Ave., Miami.

The Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources, Division of Environmental Resources Management, organizes this event with support 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.
