The cleanup is from 6-7 p.m. at the park, 1001 S. Harbor Ave. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Barefoot tent near the pavilion.

This is the second year the alliance has participated in an event with Barefoot in Grand Haven. Nearly 80 volunteers were involved last year in keeping the beach barefoot ready.

The event is part of a partnership between Barefoot Wine and the alliance’s Adopt-a-Beach program to help clean up Great Lakes beaches and shorelines, and offer a special celebration to recognize volunteers’ efforts.

In 2011, more than 8,000 Adopt-a-Beach volunteers removed 32,668 pounds of trash at 254 locations in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio and Wisconsin.

Alliance for the Great Lakes is a nonprofit organization with the mission of conserving and restoring the world's largest freshwater resource, using policy, education and local efforts, and ensuring clean water for generations of people and wildlife.
