Hundreds gather on Belle Isle Saturday morning to clean up the island

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Hundreds of volunteers gathered at Belle Isle this morning to help clean the park up.

People of all ages, families, friends, and even boat owners were asked to come help clean up the park and they answered.

The goal was to clean up the shores and small islands in the Detroit River, and to pick up as much litter as possible that collects in those areas.

The event was coordinated by the Belle Isle Conservancy, The Friends of the Detroit River, and the DNR provided an opportunity for people to participate in community service and contribute to the revitalization of Belle Isle.
