Bay City, MI - Community members are asked to join the Bay Area Community
Foundation's Riverwalk/Railtrail annual cleanup on Saturday, April 23, 2016. Volunteers should check-in at the Bay County Community Center on JFK Drive, starting at 9 a.m. The event will conclude by 12 noon. Registration is appreciated (particularly if you are
signing up a team of participants), but not required. Please contact Lisa Krause by calling (989) 893-4438 or emailing email@example.com if you wish to pre- register.
Refreshments will be available. Garbage bags and lawn equipment will be provided by
Bay City Parks Department. We recommend wearing comfortable shoes, dressing appropriately for the weather, and bringing garden gloves.
The Riverwalk/Railtrail was established and is funded by the Bay Area Community
Foundation. The trail system is a cooperative partnership between all municipalities, park
departments, the Bay County Road Commission, and the Bay Area Community Foundation's Riverwalk/Railtrail Committee.
The Bay County Riverwalk/Railtrail is 17.5 mile network of pedestrian walkways that
link a full range of community landscapes: from downtown Bay City to the riverfront at Veteran's Memorial Park, over to the many ball fields and other facilities of Bay City's
parks, and finally looping around the residential and agricultural areas of Portsmouth,
Hampton, and Bangor Townships. The most recent trail extension links to the Bay City State Recreation Area.
The Bay Area Community Foundation is a community based, philanthropic organization
working to improve the quality of life in Bay and Arenac Counties. The Foundation's
mission is to fulfill a wide array of donors' charitable wishes by building permanent
endowment funds and serving as a leader for community improvement through effective grantmaking and collaboration. The Bay Area Community Foundation office is located inside the Pere Marquette Depot, 1000 Adams Street, Suite 200, Bay City, MI 48708
