Protecting Biscayne Bay Series Schedule: New Year, / Renewed Environmental Focus

Greetings Everyone,

Each new year begins with a look at the past year and resolutions for most. We came face to face with so many critical issues in 2020, and we know changes are needed. Some will be easy, only needing a modicum of determination to adopt good practices.

Determination and the right information!
