Dequindre Cut Community Clean Up

The Dequindre Cut is one of Detroit's most popular outdoor green trails. The trail was built on an old Grand Trunk Western Railroad line that was originally built in the 1930s. The line was used by passengers until the '80s and for transport into the turn of the century. These days it is a popular place to go for a run or a bike ride, and it's a great place to see some of Detroit's unique graffiti. Spring is right around the corner and all of us are ready to take advantage of the trail, but this winter was rough, windy and rainy and the old trial needs a little love before it can be fully enjoyed this summer.

The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy is urging everyone to sign up to come clean up the trail this Saturday, April 1st. They are asking everyone who is willing to help to visit this website to sign up for the clean up. Then they would like you to meet them to check-in at the Dequindre Cut entrances at Woodbridge, Gratiot and Wilkins Street for registration and directions. The clean up will take place from noon till 4 p.m. this Saturday and all that can help are welcome to help for whatever amount of time they are able to give!

The conservancy will provide garbage bags, gloves,and light snacks to help you do your part to clean up the trail for all of us to enjoy. To learn more about the cleanup and to get updates on the event visit the event invite on Facebook here.
