Our vision is a vibrant, robust and fully restored Huron River—a destination for residents and visitors.
RiverUp! is a campaign to restore and revitalize the Huron River. It is a signature place-making initiative that seeks to transform the Huron River corridor into a premier destination in Michigan and the Great Lakes. HRWC leads this public + private partnership. Our RiverUp! projects improve river health, recreation access, and water-related investments in local economies.
Our rivers provide so many benefits to our communities. I am happy to be a part of cleaning up Southeast Michigan waterways and pleased to see partnerships of communities and organizations developing plans and projects to enhance the quality of living for our residents by preserving the natural benefits our waterways provide. The RiverUp! Project will ensure the Huron River can be enjoyed for many generations to come by investing in recreation, improving the ecological health of the Huron River, and making the river part of a community experience all the way from Milford to Flat Rock.

The public-private partnership working to make the Huron River a destination for all, both residents and tourists, brings together real commitment and the ability to get things done.

RiverUp! is all about communities celebrating what we share and wish to significantly improve—our beloved Huron River.
