The Saline River is part of the River Raisin Watershed.

The River Raisin Watershed Council was formed in 1974 under Michigan's Local River Management Act with the goal to inspire behaviors that promote stewardship, improve water quality and promote public participation that preserves and enhances the watershed.

Here are two upcoming River Raisin Watershed Council events.

 

Adopt-A-Stream: Bug ID Day - Nov. 16, 10am-1pm
113 Peelle Hall, Adrian College
Join Dr. Jim Martin from Adrian College and RRWC as we help sort and identify the bugs we found in the river this fall on our Stream Search events. Macroinvertebrates (river bugs) can tell us about the health of the river as some are more tolerant of pollution than others. Come learn about bugs! Arrive at 10am, but feel free to leave at your leisure!
 
Volunteer Teacher Training - Nov. 20, 6:30pm-8pm
Lenawee Drain Commissioner's Office: 320 Springbrook Ave. Suite 102, Adrian, MI 49221
Do you want to help RRWC teach in K-12 classrooms? This training is for you! We will teach you how to use two water models that show important concepts about water movement and conservation. You'll get an overview of scientific concepts that go along with the different natural resources topics we teach. Please RSVP at [email protected]
