This is the Clinton River Watershed

Thousands of lakes, ponds and wetlands. Hundreds of miles of clear, cold streams. Home to heron, trout and mink. A playground for fishing, paddling hiking and biking.
The gateway to lake St. Clair’s boating paradise.

Keeping It Clean

Keeping It Clean engages citizens of all ages in trash clean-ups throughout the Clinton River Watershed and along the Lake St. Clair shoreline. Weekly Clean events take place every Wednesday and each week is dedicated to a different location. Clinton Clean Up is a watershed event that takes place every September.

Adopt-A-Stream

Adopt-A-Stream empowers community members to protect local streams and rivers through water quality monitoring. Citizen involvement in water quality monitoring activities has resulted in positive change across the nation, the state, and right here in the Clinton River watershed.
