In just a few short days fall will be among us. With fall comes the beautiful changing colors of Michigan, warm apple cider, pumpkin patch trips, and the brisk air. Whether you love or hate the cold weather, this weekend is a perfect opportunity for you to take advantage of spending some time outside on one of the last days of summer! What more could you want on the last Saturday morning of Summer than kayaking around in the Thornapple River?
This Saturday, September 21st from 8:00 AM-12:00 PM, will be the Annual Thornapple River Clean-Up hosted by the Thornapple River Watershed Council. This event features many locals, and many non-locals, of the Ada Township spending a few, short hours of their busy schedules to clean up the river before the cold and snow approaches. This event has been so successful in the past that Thornapple River Watershed Council has now been doing it for over 20 years and it’s not too late to sign up for this year’s clean-up!
Michigan is known all over the United States for its natural, calming beauty (trust me, I’m from the city of Chicago so I can speak on this). From its thousands of clear lakes to its beautiful forestry and wildlife to its genuinely kind-hearted people, Michigan’s reputation falls nothing short of spectacular to outsiders. By volunteering just a few hours of your time this upcoming Saturday morning, you can help your local Ada Township here in Michigan maintain that prestige reputation by making the Thornapple river look better, and cleaner, than ever. It’s amazing how just a little help from everyone to help keep our local environment clean can result in a big change in the way people treat their surroundings- people and landscape included! The environment has always taken care of us, now it’s time we take care of it!
