14th Annual Mayor's Grand River Cleanup

  • 6th street brdige park grand rapids, MI 49503 USA (map)

This event will be hosted by WMEAC on September 9th, 2017 from 8:30am until 1pm! There will be a small breakfast available before the event and a light lunch after the event. Live music will be provided during lunch!

This year, as an exciting addition to the cleanup, WMEAC is partnering with the SEEDS of promise neighborhood in collaboration with their Environmental Impact Team to pick up litter along road sides and storm drains in a proactive attempt to pick up trash before it enters into our beautiful Grand River!
