327 volunteers worked along the Grand River in Grand Haven during the 4th annual Grand River GreenUp.

Over 8 tons of trash were removed, including 2 tons which were able to be recycled.

The Grand River GreenUp took place on Saturday, April 19.

The West Michigan Environmental Action Council and the Grand Haven Jaycees worked together on the project.

The Grand Haven Tribune talked to a pair of young volunteers:

Sister Gillian, 19, and Camryn, 14, Giem of Grand Rapids worked nearby.

“We really want to give back to the community and the environment is a good place to start,” Gillian said.

The girls wanted to help clean up Grand Haven because they are frequent visitors to the lakeshore, they said.

Thanks to all of the hard-working volunteers at the Grand River GreenUp!
