Beach Sweep

Join AFFEW to clean the beach and dunes west of the playground. Meet at the south concession stand. We’ll provide gloves and garbage bags.

At this weeks event Grand Valley State University’s Annis Water Resources Institute (AWRI) will showcase an innovative, remote controlled beach cleaning device called the BeBot that was designed and deployed to collect refuse and plastic litter from Michigan beaches along the Great Lakes and shoreline. Jamie Cross, outreach and science education instructor at AWRI will be available at Stearns Park to answer questions about the BeBot and AWRI’s participation in the Great Lakes Cleanup program.

Stick around after for green drinks, BYO, no glass!
