For the second year, the Clinton River Watershed Council (CRWC) is holding a scavenger hunt now through September 30 for kids and adults across the watershed, which spans 63 communities in Oakland and Macomb Counties. In honor of CRWC’s 50th anniversary, the Clinton River Quest has grown to include 15 new activities and will offer a virtual component.

Registered participants, known as “River Rangers,” will receive a guidebook with 50 activities to choose from, including accessing the river via a universally accessible kayak launch and paddling along the state-designed water trail, fishing along the river and identifying a native animal or plant.

“We created the Clinton River Quest last year during a challenging time to provide the community with a fun, safe way to get active and learn about the watershed and vital role it plays in our communities and ecosystem,” says Anne Brasie, executive director of the Clinton River Watershed Council. “We were blown away by the response. Throughout the scavenger hunt, River Rangers will learn about the history of the watershed, how it directly affects water quality and the communities around it and the critical role every individual plays in protecting natural water resources and wildlife.”

The cost to participate is $15 for individuals with lower family rates available. River Rangers will receive a T-shirt, backpack, guidebook and entry into a raffle for a kayak and paddle.
