The City of Coral Gables and students from the City of Coral Gables Police Explorers and the Police Athletic League (PAL) helped clean up Biscayne Bay as a part of the Annual Baynanza event. City volunteers joined countless other local organizations to pick up garbage along the shores and roadways of Matheson Hammock Park in Coral Gables. The event was a huge success in raising awareness about litter prevention and the importance of protecting our environment.
