DETROIT (WWJ) – There’s an adopt-a-highway clean up program … and as WWJ’s Rob Sanford reports … there’s now an adopt-a-stream effort in the Clinton River watershed.

The Clinton River covers 760 square miles and includes another thousand miles worth of streams in addition to the 80 mile long main branch.

So assessing the health of the water shed and clean up efforts require lots of help. That’s the idea of the Adopt-A-Stream program, where you can volunteer to help gather information and will be given the equipment needed to keep track of the wildlife that live there.

Twice a year, in May and October teams of trained volunteers visit their adopted site and collect data. After 3 hours of training….each volunteer dedicates 3 to 4 hours of their time a year.

If you’d like to get involved call 248-601-0606 or click on here for more information about training.
