Volunteers are heading out to forests and swamps throughout the watershed to assess their ecological quality.

HRWC will partner with five Southeast Michigan land conservancies (Legacy Land Conservancy, Southeast Michigan Land Conservancy, Livingston Land Conservancy, North Oakland Headwaters Land Conservancy, and Six Rivers Regional Land Conservancy) to identify and establish strategic conservation priorities, perform field assessments on targeted natural area properties, and work with property owners to permanently protect and restore those that can best help the Huron River.

“The health of the Huron depends on the number and quality of natural areas within the watershed. The Carls Foundation’s support allows us to take the Bioreserve Project to the next level to protect the river now and for generations to come,” says Laura Rubin, HRWC Executive Director.
