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!
In 2018 the CRWC received funding from Michigan DNR as part of the Aquatic Habitat Grant, to restore a 500-foot section of the Clinton River located at Yates Cider Mill in Rochester Hills.This part of the Clinton River is highly trafficked by anglers due to the annual steelhead run and ample river access.
This project will help improve riparian conditions, reduce sedimentation, reduce erosion and enhance in stream habitat.
The project will also provide access improvements for anglers. Construction is set to begin in Winter 2019. The CRWC hopes to continue restoration along this stretch into the future and is actively pursuing additional funds to help protect his important urban resource.
