Starting this weekend, parks around Grand Rapids will start getting a little cleaning action as the community group, Grand Rapids Water Protectors are kicking off their “Community Clean-Up Series” this weekend, according to WOODTV.

The Grand Rapids Water Protectors will take two hours each Sunday afternoon at a different city park spending time cleaning up picking up trash. They're starting the project this Sunday afternoon at McKay-Jaycees Park over on Kalamazoo Ave SE. The group will meet at 1:30 pm to start.

If you’re reading this and thinking you want to be a part of this, the Grand Rapids Water Protectors welcome the help. WOODTV says to just bring a reusable water bottle, gloves, and mask. This is a great way to help keep our beautiful city parks and realize how your work can impact our environment, but also get outside and reconnect with nature.

Grand Rapids Water Protectors Vice President Brandy Reyes told WOODTV,

“It’s really easy to like living in the city being so disconnected from nature. You got your everyday life but like the things that we do on a daily basis does affect the environment.”
