Visit the Friends at Tour Our Town!
The Great Blue Heron, Blanding's Turtle, Small Mouth Bass, and many other critters call the Shiawassee River "home." Some of these river residents can tell us a lot about the health of the river. For a closer look at water quality and wildlife in your community, come see the Friends of the Shiawassee River at the Heritage Bridge (behind the Shiawassee Arts Center) in Downtown Owosso.
