Baynanza is a celebration of Biscayne Bay and its significance as one of the most important ecological systems in South Florida. Since Baynanza's beginning in 1982, volunteers have helped remove over one million pounds of trash from Biscayne Bay!

Volunteer Day Main Tasks:

  • Removal of marine debris from the water and surrounding mangrove habitats

We will be conducting a shore-based marine debris clean-up as well as several vessels transporting volunteers to and from the near by island to remove marine debris. This volunteer event may require heavy lifting hence teenagers and older groups are recommended. If younger age groups participate, they should be monitored at all times by the designated guardian, parents, etc. *Community Service hours also provided*

    • Gloves and trash grabbers (if you have them-otherwise Miami Waterkeeper will provide all supplies).
