2019 Great Lakes Stewardship - Other Great Lakes Stewardship

Project Summary

Working on Detroit’s East Side, Audubon Great Lakes’ Wild Indigo Nature Explorations program will build community appreciation of wetland ecology and support for their restoration along the Detroit River. This project will develop a series of events that, via community science, recreation, and stewardship, will foster a deeper connection to wildlife along the upper Detroit River. With community partners, we will develop a cohort of ambassadors who will advocate for healthy watersheds in the region.
