Protecting, Enhancing and Celebrating
Clinton River Watershed Council's 50th Anniversary Kick-off Event
Clinton River Watershed Council (CRWC) is celebrating a half-century of protecting, enhancing, and celebrating the Clinton River, its watershed, and Lake St. Clair. In lieu of the non-profit’s traditional annual meeting, CRWC is inviting the community to join them for a special 50th anniversary celebration at Yates Cider Mill in Rochester Hills on Wednesday, Octtober 6.
The event will be held in Yates’ picnic area and is free and open to the public. Yates’ apple cider, donuts and other fall treats will be provided, as well as complimentary CRWC 50th Anniversary tasting glasses. CRWC representatives will give tours of the recently completed restoration project at Yates - a 500-foot section of the Clinton River to improve riparian conditions, reduce sedimentation, reduce erosion, and enhance in-stream habitats.
Since 1972, CRWC has coordinated the efforts of local governments, businesses, community groups and individuals to improve water quality, promote innovative watershed management techniques, and celebrate the river as a natural and recreational resource. To kick-off its 50th anniversary, CRWC merchandise will be available for purchase at the event.
The Clinton River watershed covers 760 square miles through four counties (Macomb, Oakland, Lapeer, and St. Clair). Over 1.5 million people live in the 63 communities through which the Clinton River flows before reaching Lake St. Clair. CRWC is a non-profit organization that protects, enhances, and celebrates the Clinton River, its watershed, and Lake St. Clair.
Yates Cider Mill is located at 1990 E. Avon Rd., Rochester Hills. To RSVP or for more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/421990986022024.
