Rouge Rescue 2014
Date(s) - 05/17/14
Each spring Friends of the Rouge and community partners bring volunteers together from across the watershed to work toward the common goal of improving the Rouge River in Southeast Michigan. The river winds through neighborhoods and backyards in 48 communities as it flows to the Detroit River and is home to 1.5 million people.
Volunteer help is needed to clean up trash from the Rouge River and to remove invasive plants that threaten biodiversity. Volunteers will also work to plant native vegetation to reduce streambank erosion and the devastating impact of stormwater. Activities vary by site. Multiple work sites will be held across the region.
