NMU Conservation Crew to host Community Cleanup in Marquette
The crew will provide supplies to help community members pick up trash around town.
MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - April 17 is the first day of Anderton’s Earth Week at Northern Michigan University. To kick it off, NMU’s Conservation Crew is inviting volunteers to participate in a Community Cleanup.
From 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, the crew will be at Mattson Lower Harbor Park. They will provide supplies for volunteers to pick up trash around Marquette.
Conservation Crew co-leader Jane Fitkin says the cleanup is a simple way the community can make a big impact on the environment.
“We want to gain momentum for conservation work and sustainability work on campus and in the community in general,” said Fitkin. “Earth Week is just a really great time to be able to bring attention to all of that and to get people involved as much as possible.”
A few prizes will be given out for the most trash collected.
