Get your free wall calendar of Huron River nature photography and pollution prevention tips!
The Huron River watershed is nothing short of remarkable. It plays a vital role in our daily lives. In many ways, it makes our lives possible. Thanks to the river, creeks, wetlands and lakes, we can enjoy healthy ecosystems. Safe drinking water. Thriving towns and cities. Diverse wildlife. And inviting places to swim, fish, paddle, socialize, exercise or simply enjoy nature.
This year’s Huron River wall calendar celebrates the beauty and benefits of the watershed with stunning photos from four local nature photographers. We are grateful for their work and for the community partners who make the calendar possible! Educating residents about the impact of their day-to-day actions on rivers, streams and lakes is one of their shared goals.
It is our hope that the calendar inspires you to take part in creating a healthier Huron River for the future.
