Canton’s annual River Day will be held on Saturday, May 15, from 9 a.m. - noon at Flodin Park, located on Saltz Road at Morton Taylor Road.  River Day is a celebration of the rivers in the southeast Michigan region and this year’s event will focus on environmental education.  

River Day takes place rain or shine and volunteers of all ages including residents, students and scout troops are encouraged to participate. Volunteers will be asked to wear masks and socially distance themselves during the event. Activities are still being planned and will be announced in next month’s FOCUS Newsletter.

 Due to COVID, there will be no t-shirts this year and registration must be done prior to the event, as there will be no on-site registration. Volunteers can register by calling 734/394-5160.
