Annual River Clean Up Events

14th Annual Mayors' Grand River Clean Up
September 9, 2017

More than 1000 volunteers from all over West Michigan came out to help clean up trash out of the Grand River and its tributaries. 

22nd Annual Thornapple River Clean Up
September 16, 2017

The Thornapple River Watershed Council coordinated another great cleanup for the Thornapple. Three groups took on three sections of the Thornapple River; Cascade Township, Alaska, and the Village of Middleville. Some of the items removed from the river include tires, broken glass, a tool box, wire fencing, the top of a car, and a log cutter. 

We would like to remind everyone that the river is a shared resource and it is never okay to discard trash or anything that is not biodegradable anywhere other than a trash receptacle.
