*** NOTICE ***


You would think Mother Nature would be more cooperative with our plans, but for the second time we need to call off the River Cleanup. Thunderstorms are predicted all day. We will always put your safety first, so go back to bed and enjoy the storms. 

We do need to get our river cleaned up before October 31st, so if you or your organization would like to work with us to organize and schedule mini-cleanups at parks and along stretches of the river, please get in touch with Larry Johnson and I at your earliest convenience.

Thank you so much for your enthusiasm, your patience and understanding, and most of all....thank you for being such a great Friend!

IMG_3032.JPGWe had a fabulous party with over 40 Friends at Mitchell Amphitheater in Owosso on Saturday to celebrate the people, the friendships and all the work we have accomplished together.

Thank you so much to the Cook Family Foundation - Shiawassee County Nonprofit Capacity Building Program for sponsoring the Friends 20th Birthday Party! This program has helped our family of nonprofits become strong, stable and more collaborative, including the Friends of the Shiawassee River.  As we deepen our partnerships with communities, businesses, schools and organizations along the full 120 mile length of the river - from the headwaters in Holly to Chesaning and St. Charles -  NOW is a great time to become a member of the Friends. 

Membership with Friends of the Shiawassee River supports our work to sustain and improve a healthy clean river, promote local communities' economic and recreation connections to the river, and share information, science and stewardship opportunities. Become a member today and join our fun and growing team of awesome Friends!
