Listed below are brief descriptions of Clinton River Watershed Council’s annual events. In addition to these core events, various events are hosted throughout the year.
CRWC sponsors regular River Walksto points of interest around the watershed, in the months in which we do not have a major event occurring. For more information on upcoming walks, watch our calendar, email updates, and River Walks event section of this website for events as they become available.
The Annual Meeting & Awards Dinner is held in the Spring to help fund the ongoing work of the Clinton River Watershed Council to protect our watershed with various programs and services. Watch our calendar, email updates, and Annual Meeting events section of this website for events as they become available.
The Annual Clinton River Steelhead One-Pattern Fishing Tournament is an opportunity to join local fisherman and river enthusiasts to celebrate the Clinton River’s annual steelhead run. Watch our calendar, email updates, and One-Pattern Steelhead section of this website for details as they become available.
Every year in early June, individuals, businesses, community groups, and local governments across the watershed join forces on River Day to enhance and celebrate the Clinton River and Lake St. Clair. Activities range from nature hikes, canoe trips, fishing derbies, and fly fishing lessons to storm drain stenciling, river clean-ups, habitat restoration, and native landscaping.
Clean water, fantastic fishing and the natural beauty of Lake St. Clair are the main attractions of this crown jewel of outdoor recreation in Southeast Michigan. The Lake St. Clair Clean Boating Campaign is in partnership with the Anchor Bay Yachting Association and MacRay Harbor to bring boater best practices to Lake St. Clair.
Funding for the Clinton River and Lake St. Clair is so important, so efforts like the CRWC fundraiser Walk-A-Thon benefit our programs and services. Your participation is greatly appreciated and your donations will be used to support important programs within the watershed. As a team member, you will help raise money by raising pledges to support our cause.
Set sail with us from Mount Clemens and cruise down the Clinton River on the Clinton Friendship while enjoying a delicious meal, a warm summer breeze and an evening of entertainment. This event is a fun-filled evening which benefits the Clinton River Watershed Council and its programs.
After playing in the watershed all summer long, join CRWC and our volunteer coordinators to collect litter from the riverbanks and parks, remove invasive species, and manage woody debris during our annual Clinton Clean-Up event. Clean-Up events will be included on our calendar, in the Clinton Clean-Up event section of this website along with promotion through our email updates.
Come join the Clinton River Watershed Council as we search for the Winter Stonefly. These aquatic insects are most active during colder months and their presence in the river indicates good water quality. Our search will help add to our Adopt-a-Stream data and will provide a chance to learn about the ecology and conditions of our local streams.
Throughout the year we offer various presentation & workshops throughout the watershed to learn about current conditions and ways you can help. You may also request a presentation or workshop for your organization.
Other events are scheduled throughout the year by CRWC and by other environmental agencies and businesses. These may include Adopt-A-Stream and Stream Leader events, Steelhead Fishing, and other outings. Watch our calendar, email updates, and event updates for details.
