Please join CFI Service Volunteers as we work to beautify the banks of the Grand River from the Lakeshore to Coopersville.

Register at http://www.grandrivergreenup.com/register.html. Make sure to put "CFI Michigan" as the group you are volunteering with so that we can all work together.

Harbor Island can be accessed from US-31 via Coho Drive (if southbound) or Harbor Island Drive (if northbound). There will be signs on the roads near the park pointing you in the right direction!
