Friends of The River

The Friends of the River is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit that works to improve water quality, access, and awareness on the Rivers in Michigan. We implement these goals in a number of ways. A few examples would be by getting our hands dirty and hosting regular river clean ups. Or when we work with communities to help provide docking for recreational boats of all sizes from kayaks to larger power boats. We also host and attend events regarding the rivers in order to help keep communities aware of just how important our rivers and water resources are.
