The Clinton River Watershed


The Clinton River Watershed Council (CRWC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting, enhancing and celebrating the Clinton River, its watershed and Lake St. Clair.

What We Do


Through education, stewardship and watershed management, the CRWC makes a difference in our local community for today and future generations. We provide residents, schools, governments, businesses and other community groups with wide-ranging programs and events to ensure a healthy Clinton River Watershed for us all.

Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow


To improve the water quality within the Clinton River Watershed, deliberate and coordinated action is required from everyone, from the individual resident to local governments. With time and effort, the Clinton River, its watershed and Lake St. Clair are being restored. Join us as we continue to improve the Clinton River Watershed for this generation and the next to come.

HEALTHY RIVER,
HEALTHY WATER


When one thinks of a “healthy river,” they may first envision a river in a dramatic mountain landscape far, far away from any human development. Yes, this river in a remote wilderness may rank higher in overall health, but a river flowing through a major metropolitan area is not inherently unhealthy either. A healthy river is comprised of many facets including biological, physical and chemical.

ENJOYING
NATIVE PLANTS


Coming in a wide variety of shapes, colors, sizes and foliage types, there are over 600 Michigan native plants including wildflowers, grasses, ferns, trees, groundcovers, shrubs, evergreens and vines. Native plants are beautiful, easy to grow, absorb stormwater runoff and provide food and shelter for birds and pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
