Thank you for making

River day 2017 a success!

River Day is designed to encourage appreciation and recreational use of the waterways of the Clinton River and Lake St. Clair, and to celebrate the leadership of local citizens, organizations, and communities whose efforts are critical to protecting and enhancing the overall quality of the Clinton River watershed.

This past June individuals, businesses, community groups, and local governments across the watershed joined forces on River Day to enhance and celebrate the Clinton River and Lake St. Clair. Activities ranged from nature hikes, canoe trips, fishing derbies, and fly fishing lessons to storm drain stenciling, river clean-ups, habitat restoration, and native landscaping.

ANNOUNCING: River Day 2017 Logo!

Every year, CRWC solicits logo designs for the River Day logo contest. This year, we had many great logo designs that were submitted by people of all ages from all over the watershed. The winner was decided by popular vote at our Annual Meeting event last week and the logo will appear on this year’s official River Day event t-shirt.
CRWC would like to congratulate Lauren Pitylak, a student and resident of Clarkston, MI as this year’s River Day logo contest winner! Lauren designed her logo by using a double exposure of a forest inside of a river fish. Pitylak enjoys visiting Yates cider mill and Rochester Park – two popular places for viewing the scenic beauty within the Clinton River watershed – and hiking along the Clinton River on the trails. She appreciates what’s being done to improve water quality around Oakland county and is excited for this opportunity to have her art out in public.
