WMEAC hosts our Spring Ottawa County Cleanup at Harbor Island in Grand Haven! More info about the 2015 Ottawa County Cleanup coming soon!
For more than a decade, WMEAC has organized volunteer cleanups of the Grand River. Each spring, volunteers convene in Grand Haven to work along the Grand River’s banks in Ottawa County. Each fall, WMEAC and the Mayors of metro Grand Rapids host one of the nation’s largest volunteer river cleanups.
From 2003-2014, nearly 5,000 volunteers have picked up more than 130,000 pounds of trash from the banks of the Grand River and its tributaries. Planning for these events happens all year, so please fill out the contact form below to get involved!
