Litter clean-up along the Detroit River at Maheras Gentry Park. We will have bamboo toothbrushes, snacks, other giveaways, and PPE for volunteers. Participants will learn some history about the history of Maheras Gentry park, and an overview of the impact of plastics on the Detroit River.
Come join the Social Forestry Project and Plastic Oceans International as we hold the 3rd in our series of efforts to reduce plastic pollution in the City of Detroit.
This time we will be at Alfred Brush Ford Park on the Detroit River.
Please bring a refillable water bottle and gloves if possible.
Masks are encouraged but not required as we will be outdoors and the staff of Plastic Oceans and The Social Forestry Project are fully vaccinated.

BlueCommunities Inaugural Event Celebrating Earth Day
Join The Social Forestry Project and Plastic Oceans International as we celebrate Earth Day with BlueCommunities Detroit’s first event! We will be cleaning up the shoreline and more at Maheras Gentry Park in Detroit, MI as well as giving away free tree saplings (baby trees).
Safety is our first priority – all Covid-19 safety protocols are to be followed including wearing a mask at all times, and appropriately socially distancing. We will have gloves, mask, hand sanitizer, and trash collecting bags to distribute to volunteers. Due to these restrictions we will be limiting event size to 50 participants. Please register in advance by filling out our Google Form – https://forms.gle/mAL94ynAXivZ853p9 – or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Event check-in will be all the way in the back of the park on the river under the pavilion.
Please bring your own water bottle and snacks as we will not be providing either to ensure event safety.
