This 100% volunteer event has gathered over 757 tons of debris from the Lake St. Clair shoreline since 1995.
The St. Clair Shores Waterfront Environmental Committee (SCSWEC), in conjunction with the Jefferson Yacht Club (JYC), spearheads this annual community effort to protect beaches and shoreline against water pollution along Lake St. Clair.
Promoting better water quality, a cleaner, safer lake, and greater public awareness remains at the forefront of civil responsibilities in waterfront stewardship.
