Bay Drift: Drift Card Release
April 19, 2017
Miami Circle Park
The Bay Drift Study is investigating how the currents in Biscayne Bay move so that we can better predict how trash and other pollutants are transported. We will be releasing our drift cards promptly at 10:45 at Miami Circle Park right next to the Icon in Brickell. Make sure you arrive 15-20 minutes early so you can find parking and meet us at the Miami Circle. For more info and data from past drift card and GPS drifter releases, check out http://carthe.org/baydrift/
