    • 2016 Lower Detroit River Litter Clean Up

      FDR clean up

      April 23, SaturdayLower Detroit River Litter Clean Up 9am – 2pm5, 20Presented by Friends of the Detroit River on Belle Isle, Detroit, MI.In late April each year, a flotilla of small boats ferries eager volunteers out to various islands and shorelines in the Lower Detroit River to collect the accumulated debris that has collected over the past year. This event is the Lower Detroit River Cleanup, and is based at Rotary Park in Trenton, thanks to the support of the City of Trenton. Over the years, the Cleanup has removed tons of trash from the lower river. The Cleanup is the Riverkeeper Program project, and gives volunteers the opportunity to help make the river cleaner, as well as to get out on the river and to appreciate the need for stewardship of this valuable resource. Volunteers and the trash collected are returned to the park, where lunch is served.www.detroitriver.org
