This is a downtown Grand Rapids event. Please allow extra time to find parking. We encourage volunteers to carpool, bike, or utilize public transit.

What to bring:

Wear close-toed shoes and dress for the weather. We will have the cleanup rain or shine! We will provide gloves and waste bags for you to use.

Who can participate:

Anyone who can safely and responsibly navigate riverbank terrain is welcome to participate. Young volunteers need a permissionslip completed by their parent or guardian and should be supervised closely by an adult on the day of the event.

Family, friends, and groups:

Family and friends are encouraged to participate together! During online registration, you will have the opportunity to list the friends and family you want to participate with. Thinking of bringing a club, a group from your church, or your coworkers? E-mail Becky Brown to learn more.


A light breakfast and a lunch will be provided to volunteers. Founders Brewing Company is offering complimentary beer to volunteers who are 21-and-up.

This year, t-shirts are available for $8 each.
