Now is the perfect time to get involved with protecting our freshwater resources with volunteer events, free training and education classes and family-friendly activities throughout the year!
The Keeping-It-Clean Program encourages watershed residents to directly get involved in improving the health and natural beauty of their watershed by participating in regularly scheduled trash cleanups.
From spring through early winter, Keeping-It-Clean coordinates cleanup projects and events throughout the Clinton River Watershed.
This program engages residents of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels with activities ranging from on-land garbage collecting to paddling and water trail cleanups to invasive species removal and native plant installations.
Weekly Clean occurs every Wednesday from April-November. Locations will be posted online in advance (prior registration is not required, unless a large group plans on attending). Weekly Cleans are open to individuals of all ages and skill levels. There is no clean-up the week of Thanksgiving. Weekly Clean will be canceled if conditions are deemed unsafe due to weather or if the temperature is below 20°F. The schedule and locations of clean-ups are updated on a monthly basis. Make sure to check this schedule, social media, and your email to keep up to date with the latest Weekly Clean info. Cancellations will be announced 24 hours prior to the event on our website and social media whenever possible. Inclement weather can roll in without notice though. Please call the CRWC office (248) 601-0606 if you have questions about Weekly Clean
