Baynanza

Event Expired

Do your part to keep beautiful BISCAYNE BAY clean at this annual Miami Dade event.  Baynanza runs for several weeks across the county and includes family-friendly activities that involve workshops, presentations, special exhibits, nature kies & tours as well as the big clean up day on April 16th.  In the past, over 40 TONS of trash and recyclable materials were collected at Baynanza with over 6000 volunteers participating.  What better way to celebrate Earth Day than giving back to our local environment with your time and care!?

Volunteers will receive a free commemorative T-shirt. This year’s chosen design was done by Tatiana Loo, from St. Thomas the Apostle School. T-shirts are available for registered Cleanup Day volunteers at each site (size preference subject to availability).

Online registration for the Cleanup Day is open. Register now.

For more information, call 305-372-6784.
