Event Description

The Veterans Green Project of Michigan will be cleaning the Detroit Riverfront Park from 10 am until 4. on Sunday Nov, 11, 2012.

We will be doing a sweep of the entire park starting at one end and walking in a line picking up the trash and debris and we go. There will be trash bags and dumpster on site along with refreshments.

All you need to bring is some boots (it may rain) and a par of gloves.

Come out and join local veterans who want to help make Detroit and clean and sustainable city. One that respects the land and people who defend it.

We are inviting the representatives from the governors office, veterans organizations, businesses and the general public to assist us.

Our Immediate goal:
