21st Annual Grand River Ground Cleanup

May 22, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

This event has been canceled. We will see you on the river again in 2022!

Join us for a unique volunteer event! Hike through scenic local parks while gathering unwanted waste along the way. We have found tires, beds, and many treasures during our 20 years of cleaning up the river. Who knows what you will pull out this year?!

Advanced registration is required.

This event will happen rain or shine. We will hike local trails and clean up waste and invasive species. All Land Conservancy events respect CDC guidelines, social distancing, and will include individual, boxed meals and outdoor seating.
