The 11th annual Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup begins Saturday, September 20th at Sixth Street Park. Over the years, thousands of volunteers have picked up more than 120,000 pounds of refuse from the banks of the Grand River and its tributaries in Grand Rapids, Walker, Grandville, and Wyoming.
The event is hosted by our friends at WMEAC and they ask that you please register for the event at http://grandrivercleanup.com/register/. If you want to learn how you can get involved with planing the event, e-mail Becky Brown, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell, Walker Mayor Mark Huizenga, Wyoming Mayor Jack Poll, and Grandville Mayor Steve Maas are sponsoring this year’s clean up of the Grand River in their respective communities. An estimated 450 volunteers are needed to collectively cover nearly 20 miles of the Grand River and selected tributaries, including several new clean up sites.
