Join Clinton River Watershed Council (CRWC) and learn how to help improve and protect water quality while supporting our native species of Southeast Michigan. CRWC will provide an overview of the Clinton River and its Watershed, the current water quality issues that it faces, and ways individual homeowners and communities can design their gardens and landscaping to help improve the health and quality of the watershed. This presentation includes lots of free handouts with information on how to choose what to plant, where to find native plants, and several key native species to keep an eye out for.

Please note that this event will be held at The Birdfeeder, which will be open for business! A printable flyer is available for distribution.
