Now is the perfect time to get involved with protecting our freshwater resources with volunteer events, free training and education classes and family-friendly activities throughout the year!
Establishing current conditions of a river, stream or wetland prior to restoration efforts is important. This will help determine if a restoration has achieved what was intended. By monitoring restoration projects before and after completion, we can identify areas of important and help to conclude techniques are viable and successful for future projects.
CRWC has performed project monitoring for many restoration projects, ranging from small scale restorations to large multi-jurisdictional projects. CRWC staff have extensive experience in field data collection and procedures for accurately quantifuing habitat quality. CRWC analyzes most data in house and provides stakeholders with detailed project reports following restoration.
The CRWC along with countless partners across the region help to delvelop and promote projects that will continue to protect and enhance the Clinton River, its wateshed and Lake St. Clair. The CRWC is always looking for new impactful ways to make a difference in the watershed. We do this by maintaining long term water quality data and watershed wide inventories such as the Road-Stream Crossing Program. We also assist our local communities with river related issues and educate on proper maintenance of our water resources.
