Adopt-a-Stream Events

Adopt-a-Stream is celebrated each spring and fall. This is your opportunity to help collect valuable data about the health of our watershed. We collect macro-invertebrates (bugs living in the river) from 16 sites across the watershed.

This event is made of 3 days:

Day 1) Training Day - You learn about the project and how to collect bugs in the river safely.

Day 2) Stream Search Day - You get out in the river and collect some bugs!

Day 3) Bug ID Day - Get an up-close look at the bugs you found in the river and learn about the
health of the stream.

River Raisin Rescue Cleanup Program

RRWC would like to partner with you to help clean up the river!

 

Join us in:

  • Cleaning up trash in and around the river

  • Remove invasive species

  • Clearing a path through log jams for kayakers to enjoy the river

Your organization can sponsor additional river cleanup events with the River Raisin Watershed Council. They are a great way to enjoy and enhance the river.

Contact us if you would like assistance coordinating a river clean-up.
