Krazy for the Kazoo River Clean-Up and Conservation

Krazy for the Kazoo Kalamazoo River Cleanup

Krazy for the Kazoo is an annual effort to cleanup streams and rivers in the Kalamazoo River Watershed where illegal dumping and litter are big problems.  The cleanups take place throughout the year and are hosted by many different partners. Our list of cleanup events is always growing, so check back soon for update event schedules.

This watershed-wide event has been occurring for more than 20 years! It's spread to many locations over the years including Marshall, Battle Creek, Charlotte, Otsego, Kalamazoo, Albion, and others. Powered by volunteers, each year we work to help support the stewardship of areas in and around the Kalamazoo River and its tributaries, removing trash and debris, planting new trees, removing problematic invasive plants, and much more.

This is the second Krazy for the Kazoo cleanup event hosted by the City of Kalamazoo in 2022. Volunteers will gather at Merrill Park in Comstock on the Kalamazoo River at 9 a.m. We will be doing cleanup around the boat launch and shoreline at Merrill Park, and then we will paddle to the Mayor’s Riverfront Park Boat Launch in Kalamazoo. Help shuttling vehicles will be provided. Participants must have their own vessel. Bringing your own waders is also recommended.
