On The Waterfront

Posted by – Shawn Keenan, Water Resources Coordinator

Once again, it is time for the City of Auburn Hills Annual Clinton River Clean-Up!  This year’s event will be held on the last day of summer which is tomorrow, Saturday, September 21st.


The past 12 years have been a huge success for the City in improving the water quality of the Clinton River, and its tributaries.  The improvements in water quality have led to an increase in fish populations and fishing opportunities in the Clinton River.  The same water quality improvements have also led to an increase in the number of people canoeing and kayaking on the river.

The City of Auburn Hills is just one of many communities within the Clinton River Watershed involved in this clean-up effort.  We need to let other communities know that Auburn Hills cares about its community and natural resources. This half day event will allow residents, businesses, and organizations to work together to restore one of the City’s most precious resources, while also having fun at the same time.

With your help, we will be able to preserve and maintain our beautification efforts along the Clinton River corridor.  We hope that you will join us Saturday, September, 21st, to help continue this tradition that began over 30 years ago.

Registration begins at 8:30am at River Woods Park, which is located on the east side of Squirrel Road, south of M-59.  Clean-up will start at 9:00am and end around noon.

Volunteers are advised to wear work clothes and sturdy shoes, as well as a pair of gloves if you have them.
