Trash Free Waters
Keeping our beaches and waters clean is a continual process and a group effort! The US Environmental Protection Agency recently awarded a grant to the Macatawa Area Coordinating Council to support beach and river cleanups in Ottawa and Allegan Counties. This project is in partnership with Ottawa County Parks and Recreation, the Ottawa Conservation District, Hope College, the ODC Network, the Allegan Conservation District and the Kalamazoo River Watershed Council. Partners will hold volunteer beach and river cleanups throughout Ottawa and Allegan County over the next couple years. Each partner will organize and run their own events and the MACC will post the full list with registration links. As events are completed, we will also report the results.
2022 Upcoming Clean-up Events
Registration will be required for each event. Links to registration will be posted in early 2021. All events are subject to change due to beach conditions, weather or COVID-19 restrictions. Events listed below are hosted by Allegan Conservation District. To volunteer with other organizations on this project, visit the project page on the Macatawa Area Coordinating Council website.
