Small Acts make Grand Impact!

The Grand River is a vital part of the Grand Rapids community. We fish, play, and celebrate the Grand River all year. The river winds its’ way to Lake Michigan where we get our drinking water, use for recreation and enjoy the beauty of Lake Michigan.  It takes only 15-30 minutes for trash around storm drains in Grand Rapids to find its way to the Grand River. Pollution in rivers affects the plants, fish, drinking water quality, beauty, and recreational value for our community. The waste that is removed at the 15th Annual Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup is a small act that makes a grand impact.
