History - http://www.crwc.org/
The council was formed in 1972 as an association of local governments under the authority of the Michigan Local Rivers Management Act of 1964. For more than 30 years, CRWC has served to coordinate the efforts of local governments, businesses, community groups and individuals in improving water quality, promoting innovative watershed management techniques, and celebrating the river as a natural and recreational resource.
In 1994, the council reorganized as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, which allows CRWC to obtain funding from grants and private donors. Today, we are supported by local and county government membership dues, business sponsorships, state, federal and private grants, and individual contributions
Educating the public about improving and preserving our natural resources is essential.
The people in our communities want to know how to improve and preserve the quality of the environment where they work and live. Therefore, all municipal members of the Clinton River Watershed Council are eligible and encouraged to participate.
