Cleanup Events

The US Environmental Protection Agency recently awarded a grant to the MACC to support beach and river cleanups in Ottawa and Allegan Counties. This project is in partnership with Ottawa County Parks and Recreation, the Ottawa Conservation District, Hope College, the ODC Network, the Allegan Conservation District and the Kalamazoo River Watershed Council. Partners will hold volunteer beach and river cleanups throughout Ottawa and Allegan County over the next couple years. Each partner will organize and run their own events and the MACC will post the full list with registration links. As events are completed, we will also report the results.
