The MACC worked with several homeowners to plant rain gardens on 20th and 21st Streets in the City of Holland on May 21. The City of Holland is installing these rain gardens as part of road reconstruction projects. The MACC received a grant from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to help pay for both the City’s and the homeowners’ costs to install the rain gardens. The grant is available through June 2022, so we will only install a few more rain gardens on College Ave with this funding. We hope to secure a sustainable, long-term source of funding to keep installing these types of projects.
This year, the MACC received a grant from the EPA’s Trash Free Waters Program to support this cleanup. With this grant funding, project partners are also hosting events throughout Ottawa and Allegan County. A current list of scheduled volunteer cleanups can be found on our website: www.the-macc.org/cleanup-events/
