LANSING, Mich. — The members of the Grand River Environmental Action Team (G.R.E.A.T.) have the next activity scheduled for Saturday, September 7.

This will be a Clean-up of the Grand River and will run from at 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM starting and ending in downtown Jackson.

We are seeking of volunteers for our clean-up crews. The pay may not be great (i.e. zero), but job satisfaction is very high!

Event Details: Volunteers should meet at Consumers Energy Headquarters off Cooper St. (at the parking ramp located approx. 200 S. Cooper St) at 9:00A.M on Saturday, September 8th. Wear clothes to be in or near the river. Gloves, tools, and a lunch (around 1 PM) will be provided. Some will walk the banks while others in shallow areas will wade with a canoe to put trash into, or in deep sections, paddle canoes to the log jams with trash.

Attached is a flyer of the details which you may print and distribute to others who might be interested.
