FOSR Awarded Funding for River Clean-Up
This Shiawassee County Health Department and the FOSR have received funding of $1,500 from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality & the Great Lakes Commission Volunteer River, Creek, & Stream Clean-Up program. These funds will go toward supporting the 18th Annual River Clean-Up event on August 1st this year. The Village of Chesaning was also awarded funding through this program, and will be hosting a Clean-Up in partnership with the Friends on August 1st. This partnership marks the beginning of an effort to build a watershed wide day of clean-up along the Shiawassee River. Visit our River Clean-Up events page for more details.
