Are you wondering how you can help improve
the water quality of the Rouge River? There are two very effective
ways to accomplish this. First, it is important to increase awareness.
Become more informed about water quality issues and voice your concerns.
The best way to do this is to join with others already involved
in these efforts. Secondly, increase your activity. Get involved
in local efforts that improve your environment. Remember, individual
and collective efforts will help protect the quality of this
valuable natural resource. Get involved!
Friends of the Rouge is a group working to restore the Rouge River.
They are involved in many activities including water quality monitoring
and education. Learn about some of these activities and how you
can join an organization.
Get involved by volunteering! There are a number of volunteer
opportunities dedicated to Rouge River cleanup and protection.
Young and old alike will enjoy monitoring wildlife, river watching
and stream monitoring. Your participation can make a difference!
On an individual level, learning to change some of our behaviors
can help to protect the water quality of the Rouge River and our
water resources. Individual actions
and those efforts in your community
have important impacts on our water resources. Rouge River fact
sheets, reports and articles are good sources of information.
The River Friendly Partners Program
provides education and assistance to businesses and communities
