Rouge Watershed | Friends of the Rouge Watershed | 2019
Through a learning-by-doing approach, this community-powered project will deepen participants’ understanding of watershed health, the Greenbelt, and our interconnectedness with these natural systems. Decades of urban and agricultural development have put additional pressure on the carrying capacity of the Rouge River watershed. Since 1991, Friends of the Rouge Watershed has been leading hands-on restoration initiatives throughout the watershed to improve and enhance this natural feature. This project will engage over 2000 participants in naturalization activities that will increase tree canopy cover and biodiversity to enhance viable wildlife habitat, improve water quality and off-set climate change impacts.Next Recipient
