ANN ARBOR – The city of Ann Arbor has expanded its annual Huron River Day programming to span the entire month of May due to the pandemic.

Huron River Day, Every Day kicked off on May 1 with 11 signs placed in parks along the Huron River. The signs can be found in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and the Delhi and Dexter-Huron Metroparks.

Each sign features an educational prompt and icons with an activity. This year, the city is also holding the Enviro Challenge. To enter, take a picture with one of the signs and tag @a2parks on Twitter or @annarborparks on Instagram with the hashtag #HuronRiverDay. More than $1,000 in prizes supporting local businesses will be awarded in June.
