Our Mission Minimize

Our Mission:

 

The River Raisin Watershed Council is a nonprofit membership organization with a growing constituency of individuals, businesses, municipalities and community groups seeking to protect the natural resources of the watershed.            

 Working in partnership with these diverse interests, RRWC acts as a catalyst to improve the watershed environment through planning, advocacy, education, science, and protection of watershed lands.

We combine watershed science and land use planning as a framework for decision-making.

Our Board of Directors represents varied interests in the watershed and carries out governance, while work is coordinated and implemented by a professional staff and many volunteers.

Since its creation, the RRWC has experienced many changes. These changes include the passing of new bylaws, the formation of new policies, and the development of new partnerships.  

In 2009 we published the Watershed Management Plan.  This document is a great resource that can be used and cited by anyone interested in the River Raisin Watershed.

Executive Director

River Raisin Watershed Council Names Stephen May as Part-time Executive Director 

   

ADRIAN, Mich., August 12, 2015 – The Executive Committee of the River Raisin Watershed Council (RRWC) voted 6-0 to select Stephen May as their next Executive Director, effective October 1. Mr. May recused himself from the vote and will give up his seat on the RRWC Board. He has announced his resignation as Drain Commissioner to the Lenawee County Board of Commissioners. May stated that “I am excited to lead the RRWC in our mission, especially rebuilding our financial base -- with a goal of allowing me to pass the baton to a full-time Director in the future”. 

 

The River Raisin Watershed Council is a nonprofit membership organization with a growing constituency of individuals, businesses, municipalities and community groups seeking to protect the natural resources of the watershed. Working in partnership with these diverse interests, RRWC acts as a catalyst to improve the watershed environment through planning, advocacy, education, science, and protection of watershed lands. 

 

“The main consideration was our need to keep up the positive momentum built by Carley Kratz, PhD, (the prior Director) in the past year and a half. Mr. May brings years of experience with our mission and a wealth of contacts to build the resources needed to protect the watershed.” stated Evan Pratt, Committee representative for Washtenaw County. Laurie Johncox, Treasurer for RRWC added that “We had some good options. Right now the Executive Committee sees Mr. May as our best option for stability and growth and our motion included monitoring his performance regularly as we have with past Directors”. 

 

Mr. May admitted that “Carley set the bar high and will be a tough act to follow.” He added that he had already spoken to Ms. Kratz about a continued role in the group’s outreach and education. “Carley really got our rebuilding efforts off the ground and we want people to know she is still involved.” May will be a part-time employee up to 25 hours per week, compensated the same as the prior Director. May added “It has been a great run of more than 27 years in the Drain office and over 18. years as Drain Commissioner, and in an advisory role to the RRWC. Now it’s time for a hands-on role to ensure our rebuilding continues to make a difference in the watershed.” 

 

The RRWC Executive Committee thanks all of our tireless volunteers and capable Board members for your support in past years and going forward.

Water Trails Map Minimize
View Larger Map



This map includes water trails on the River Raisin and Saline River.  The length of each trail is estimated in miles.  Simply click on a trail to see where it begins and ends, in addition to its length.  Please understand that the water trails are a work in progress, and there may be log jams and other hazards that are not on the map.  You should proceed with caution.

Access points for getting in and out of the river have been identified.  Click on each park to see the address.  Our Google maps version of the parks can help you plan your route to and from the river, and gives websites for each park.  

Remember to wear your personal flotation devices and check your equipment before heading out  to safely enjoy your paddle or fishing experience.  Trespassing on personal property is illegal.  You must pay the River Raisin Canoe Livery (near Dundee) for dock rental if you intend to stop there.  

This map is a work in progress.  Sections around US-23 have been omitted due to heavy automobile traffic, but can be paddled.  We will be adding more information about possible obstructions throughout the river such as rapids and log jams.  Your feedback is very important to this process, and we would love to hear from you!
