HUDSON – 37 volunteers helped clean up Bean Creek through downtown Hudson on Aug. 22, pulling out a dozen tires, several 55-gallon drums, miscellaneous car parts, and other trash. The cleanup was sponsored by the City of Hudson, in coordination with the Bean/Tiffin Watershed Coalition, through a Michigan Volunteer River, Stream, and Creek Cleanup Grant of $2,125. The Department of Environmental Quality selected eighteen organizations to receive these grants, which are administered by the Great Lakes Commission.
2008 -- Earth Day, Earth Week at Riverside Natural Area, Morenci. New signs at the road and in the park, donated by the City of Morenci and by the Green Earth Club of Morenci High School (GECKOs) were dedicated during a sunny afternoon, April 24. Students from the High School Math & Science Club conducted a stream search for macroinvertebrates; GECKOs cleaned up the stream and the park. Volunteers with the Bean/Tiffin Watershed Coalition constructed a bench beside Bean Creek.
