2016 Clean-Up Summary

Including over 20 CMS Energy volunteers and around 58 JrROTC Cadets, we had 100 participants working to clean 12 miles of the Grand River from South Street to the Stonegate subdvision off Lansing Ave. Some walked the banks while others paddled or waded with canoes in the river. We are encouraged as our efforts have been paying off since the last three years there has been less trash removed from the river. Mark 9/9/2017 to join our 2017 Clean-up!
