11th Annual Buck Creek Clean Up

August 24 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Team up with Friends of Buck Creek for their 11th Annual Buck Creek Clean Up on Saturday, August 24th!

A clean and healthy environment is critical to the overall health of our waterways and communities. Removing trash and debris from our environment becomes increasingly difficult and expensive the farther it gets from its source. Taking action to remove trash within your community will ensure a swimmable, drinkable, and fishable future for the waters we all share. This clean up is a family-friendly, active event where volunteers will be walking and exercising as they make a positive impact upon the Buck Creek Watershed. Your participation is greatly appreciated!

If you are interested in being a sponsor of this year’s clean up, send us an email at mibuckcreek@gmail.com.

EVENT HISTORY

In 2014, Schrems Trout Unlimited, in conjunction with local municipalities, was awarded a grant to assess the water quality in the Buck Creek watershed. Currently, Buck Creek is a cold water resource that continues to be highly threatened because of its urban location. It is rare to find cold water in an urban setting, which is why Friends of Buck Creek and Schrems TU, as well as others like the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Lower Grand River Organization of Watersheds, have highlighted Buck Creek as a threatened stream in need of protection. However, th grant that was received from the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy doesn’t allow for funds to be used for a clean up, which is why Schrems Trout Unlimited and Friends of Buck Creek, in conjunction with the cities of Kentwood, Grandville, Wyoming, as well as our generous sponsors have continued to host this clean up.
