We are happy to share with you an exciting volunteering opportunity that will allow you to experience and contribute to a pivotal landmark in Detroit — Belle Isle!
Short Event History
Since the 1970s, volunteers have been the pulse of the island's annual Spring Cleanup event. In 2019 alone, volunteers removed 1,276 pounds of disposable plastic and other littered items from the canals and lakes of Belle Isle and the Detroit River, preventing it from making its way forward, further polluting our Great Lakes.
Through this event and the ongoing #KeepBelleIsleBeautiful anti-littering campaign, our goal is to further contribute to making great impacts at both the local level, by reducing litter from Belle Isle, as well as the regional level, by being an active contributor to the umbrella, global campaign to keep our waters free of plastic pollution.
