Help Survey the Landscape - Become a Volunteer Naturalist!  Do you enjoy the outdoors? Would you like to help preserve natural areas? Are you looking to learn more about the environment around you? Come share your time and knowledge to help us complete our Roadside Surveys in critical areas of the watershed!

Six Rivers Adventure League and Clinton River Watershed Council have teamed up to identify the most important natural lands in the watershed that help protect water quality in the Clinton River.  Volunteers are being recruited to help complete roadside “windshield" surveys to verify the conditions of the lands that have been identified through computer mapping. 

Volunteer training sessions will be held on the following date.

  ¢  Saturday, October 18th 9am – 11am

 Macomb Conservation District Offices, 72955 Van Dyke Rd, Bruce Township, MI 48065

 *Continental breakfast served at 9am

 The training will equip volunteers with the ability to conduct a roadside survey within designated focus areas and provide them with a basic knowledge of how to identify different ecological landscape features.

 Through volunteer efforts and the completion of these roadside surveys we are able to identify high quality natural areas most suitable for protection in the future as well as create a better understanding of the natural area that surrounds us. This is a great volunteer opportunity to share your ecological and historical knowledge of the Clinton River watershed!  

 Registration is required. To register, contact the CRWC office (248-601-0606 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. )

Southeast Michigan's Natural Heritage

Six Rivers Helps Secure Major New Nature Preserve!

Six Rivers helped Southeast Michigan Land Conservancy (SMLC ) acquire the new 538 acre Lost Lake Preserve in northern Oakland and southern Genesee counties.  Six Rivers holds a conservation easement on the preserve, which will be managed by SMLC.  An anonymous donor funded the acquisition.  The preserve can be seen between exit 106 and Baldwin Road on I-75.  It includes two lakes, wetlands, forest, remnant prairie and other habitat types.  The preserve will be opened to the public sometime in 2014 when access has been developed.

 ~ Help Us Protect the Nature near you ~

 Six Rivers Regional Land Conservancy is a non-profit conservation organization made up of members, donors and volunteers who believe it is important to sustain the quality and character of the natural resources that sustain us. We recognize and understand the value of an inviting landscape and a strong and vibrant natural resource base in our communities; it makes them attractive and healthy places to live and attracts people and institutions that create prosperity.

Toward that end, our work is with landowners who, on a voluntary basis, choose to take steps to protect their land and the integrity of the natural resources on it. For the most part our work is with private landowners who share these values for our natural heritage and choose to act on them in measurable, permanent ways. Though we are not a government or regulatory agency, on occasion they may have a role in a project we are involved in.

We also recognize that the opposite is true—when natural resources are degraded, our prosperity suffers. Similarly, public health and infrastructure costs increase.  For example treating the drinking water we all require or the discharges into the lakes and streams that provide recreation, beauty and fisheries. Our work supports vibrant and healthy economies, communities and natural resources. We invite you to join us as we work to sustain the best qualities of our region.
