Earth Day is Sunday, April 22nd, but next Saturday, April 28th you can join hundreds of volunteers to help clean up the Flint River in both Genesee and Lapeer Counties. The cleanup project will take place from 9 am until noon, each volunteer receives a free lunch, aluminum water bottle, gloves and water.

The Flint River is being used more and more for sports like fishing, kayaking, canoeing, hunting and more. In addition to the recreational opportunities, it may be used as a backup water source for the area. Keeping it clean makes good sense.

This year, the Flint River Watershed Coalition will give out it’s “Golden Gloves” award to the volunteer or group that pulls out the largest and most interesting item from the river. Previous winning items include gumball machines, a Pepsi machine and a boat filled with trash.

Visit for a complete list of cleanup sites.

Volunteer groups of 10 or more are asked to pre-register with the FRWC by calling (810) 767-6490.

The Flint River is a valuable natural resource. A resource worth preserving.
