Crafts on the Clinton can have tangible benefits in terms of sustainability, brand reputation, and community involvement.

Clean water is a critical ingredient in more than just the brewing process. Our water resources affect everything from farming to recreation, community health to manufacturing. By supporting the Clinton River Watershed Council (CRWC) and other clean water initiatives, companies can ensure they are publicly involved in the stewardship of local water resources.

Every sponsorship with CRWC helps provide individuals and communities with opportunities for hands-on learning, stream-side experiences, opportunities to volunteer, and access to recreation. Sponsorships support our mission to protect, enhance, and celebrate the health of the Clinton River through education, stewardship, and watershed management.

Through Crafts on the Clinton, you have the opportunity to improve your brand reputation and attract customers who are looking to engage with environmentally conscious organizations.
