West Michigan Environmental Action Council and Grand Rapids Young Professionals will host the 10th Anniversary Mayors’ Grand River Clean Up on Saturday, September 14 at Sixth Street Park. Over the past decade, thousands of volunteers have come together to pick up more than 100,000 pounds of refuse from the banks of the Grand River and its tributaries. Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell, Walker Mayor Barbara Holt, Wyoming Mayor Jack Poll and Grandville Mayor James Buck will host an estimated 750 volunteers to clean up their respective communities. The event will again feature an after party sponsored by Founders Brewing Co. Participants will receive free refreshments, lunch, and T-shirt. Register at grandrivercleanup.com after July 15.
