Use the power of your voice to influence the future of our water by becoming a Change Maker!
Join your fellow citizens and be a voice for the Huron River and its watershed throughout its 67 local governments.
Local governments are comprised of people who care about the quality of life in our communities. Anyone can get involved, including you!
Since 2018 HRWC has been providing free Change Makers Boot Camps to teach participants basic information about our local water–how it moves, the life giving benefits it provides, how it is threatened, and how we can protect it. The Boot Camps also cover how local governments can protect water and how citizens can get involved in the process. So far, 129 people have attended the 2-hour workshop. These Change Makers have taken action by giving feedback on planning policies, writing letters and meeting with their local representatives, supporting millage campaigns for land preservation, and running for election. Some now hold official local government positions.
HRWC Change Makers receive ‘heads up’ information on timely opportunities to protect local land and water. They also become part of a community of citizens who advocate for a healthy Huron River. If you are interested in this program, please contact Kris Olsson.
