MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) - About 100 volunteers helped clean part of the Muskegon Lake shoreline in western Michigan.

MLive.com reports (https://bit.ly/20j7KdN ) that Friday’s cleanup was the 26th annual Grand Trunk Restoration Day.

Members of the Lakeside Neighborhood Association joined students from Lakeside Elementary School, Muskegon Montessori Academy for Environmental Change and others on the project.

About 25 years ago, the Grand Trunk ramp launch was filled with mattresses, vehicle doors and other debris.

Lead volunteer Mark Evans told the newspaper that the area “used to be a dump site and over the years it has transformed into a beautiful park with docks and lots of wildlife.”

The students had the opportunity Friday to learn about the local habitat, including fish and insects along the shoreline.
