Welcome to another update to HRWC’s Change Makers.

Monthly update imageChange Makers are residents who have chosen to become a voice for the Huron River and its watershed by becoming involved in their local governments to encourage watershed-friendly land use planning and practices.

  • Advanced Change Makers Session coming up! February 21: “How to Review your Master Plan.” In this session we will be reviewing a master plan and detailing suggestions for improvement. There will be pre and post homework, which will be mailed to you after registration. This session is primarily for individuals who have gone through HRWC’s Change Makers Boot Camp, but is open to all HRWC supporters. Register here
