Disseminating Lessons Learned from Restoring the Rouge River

At one time, the Rouge River was the most polluted river in Michigan and one of the most polluted in the Great Lakes.  Today, it is going through an amazing revival thanks to strong citizen involvement and advocacy.  This revival is being chronicled in a new book titled "Rouge River Revived", which tells the story of how people are bringing their river back to life.  This grant will support a book tour of all 48 communities in the Rouge River watershed to share lessons learned during this effort, inspire a sense of wonder for the Rouge River, and help develop a stewardship ethic in the next generation.
