Cleanup and Workshop in Detroit, Michigan

September 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Park cleanup in Detroit for Trees & Seas

Come join the global movement to unite ocean and forest conservation worldwide during this year’s Trees & Seas festival. While we’ll be cleaning up the shoreline along the Detroit River, our friends at Great Lakes Great Responsibility will be tackling some of the Great Lake’s shorelines. This is a local and global impact day, as organizations across the globe will be cleaning up shorelines, rivers, forests, mangroves and morel!

We have all the supplies and PPE so all you have to do is bring your water bottle and show up! You’ll even walk away with your very own bamboo toothbrush to replace your plastic one at home! This is an Adopt-A-Beach event and all of our efforts will support the national database.

Trees & Seas is an annual celebration, presented by Montes Wines and organized by Plastic Oceans International, uniting ocean and forest conservation worldwide. The official dates are September 16 – 25, with year-round programming.
