The Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup 20th Anniversary Kick-Off

September 9 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Save the date for Saturday, September 9th for WMEAC’s 20th Annual Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup in downtown Grand Rapids.

Join forces with hundreds of volunteers to clean up the Grand River along downtown Grand Rapids. WMEAC will provide you with gloves, trash bags, and the enthusiasm to keep our shared waters clean and enjoyable for all. This event is FREE and is open to all ages, abilities and identities. We will start at 8am with a light breakfast, spend a few hours cleaning up litter and regroup to celebrate with a complimentary lunch. Non-alcoholic refreshments will be available to all volunteers who participate and a variety of local brews will be available for those over the age of 21.
