Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG), and the Southeast Michigan Partners for Clean Water announce Great Lakes and Fresh Water Week. Taking place from June 2-10, Great Lakes and Fresh Water Week is an opportunity to celebrate, learn about, and enhance our abundant water resources in Southeast Michigan through recreation, education, and stewardship activities.
The Freshwater Forum at Cranbrook Institute of Science is a member of the Southeast Michigan Partners for Clean Water and will be participating in Great Lakes Water Week by hosting a cleanup along the shore of Lake Sixteen in Orion township on June 9th, 11am-1pm.
Participants are asked to meet at the public boat launch off Joslyn Rd. Each participant is required to have an Oakland County Parks Pass and must also provide your own craft (kayak or SUP) and personal flotation device. Rentals are available through Simple Adventures
