Mar 26: Great Lakes United (GLU) has launched a new website -- Find My Cleanup -- as a resource and service to all community members. GLU says, "Our intent is to make readily available information about clean up projects in the Great Lakes basin and beyond. We strive to keep the information up-to-date and we invite community members to contact us if the information they find here is incomplete. We encourage all groups and organizations to use this tool to publicize their clean up projects and thank them for their dedication to protecting our watersheds. Great Lakes United recognizes that keeping our water sources clean and healthy must be a community priority, and we hope that this resource helps those seeking to achieve this admirable goal." The site includes an interactive Google map with locations of posted cleanup sites. Clicking the site provides details on the location, scheduled meetings, links to additional cleanup information, contacts and more detailed maps. GLU welcomes comments and suggestions on the site.
