About the Event

Join us Saturday, 4/24/21, 9:00am at Duck Park for coffee and donuts before we head out to help clean up some of Alpena County's many illegal dumpsites. This has become a serious problem in our County, and we are here to help! On Saturday, we are targeting 3 sites: Devils Lake, Hamilton Road and Rockport. All money raised will go toward proper disposal of illegal waste. Any leftover funds will be donated to a local initiative called Great Lakes Great Responsibility. We support Alpena native Meag Schwartz, an environmentalist, who is determined to pick up 1 million pieces of trash from the Great Lakes Watershed. Learn more about her initiative at: https://www.greatlakeslove.org. To donate, send check to ACDP, PO Box 611, Alpena, MI 49707. Indicate it is for ‘Earth Day’ To volunteer, email Diane at: thesunriseside@gmail.com A big to Diane O’Connor and Kial Wade for heading up this initiative!! Join us on Saturday the 24th and let's make Alpena County more beautiful - together!
