The Detroit River Canadian Cleanup (DRCC) is a community-based partnership initiated in 1998 to cleanup, enhance, restore and sustain the Detroit River ecosystem. Partnerships within the DRCC aim to promote and implement the Remedial Action Plan to restore the Detroit River's beneficial uses with the ultimate goal of removing the Detroit River from the list of Great Lakes Areas of Concern.
The federal, provincial and municipal government, local industries, scientific researchers, local environmental organizations and many dedicated citizens are key partners and play an important role in the cleanup process.
The DRCC's member organizations provide leadership in identifying partnerships and funding opportunities to support and implement cleanup goals.

The Peche Island Day Organizing Committee was concerned about the safety of loading and unloading passengers in high winds and waves and the forecast of these weather conditions has resulted in the cancellation of this event. The organizers and volunteers are very disappointed, however we look forward to organizing another Peche Island Day in 2015 and, of course, we will hope for good weather!
Thank you to all our partners that make this event possible each year, including: the City of Windsor, University of Windsor (GLIER), Windsor Police, BASF Inc., Windsor Essex County Canoe Club, Essex County Field Naturalists' Club, Essex Region Conservation Authority, Ministry of Natural Resources, and Citizens Environment Alliance.
