Report Cards for the Clinton, Detroit, Huron, River Raisin, and Rouge Rivers

Report Cards for the Clinton, Detroit, Huron, River Raisin, and Rouge Rivers

IAN is partnering with Council Fire, LLC, the Erb Family Foundation, and The Clinton River Watershed Council, Friends of the Detroit River, Huron River Watershed Council, River Raisin Watershed Council, and Friends of the Rouge River, to create socio-environmental report cards for these 5 rivers, and a report card that integrates the results into an assessment of the Detroit Michigan region. This ambitious project is a collaboration with local stakeholders to develop a shared understanding and vision for each watershed, indicators that can reflect on the social, cultural, economic, and environmental values within that vision, and analysis of data to assess progress toward achieving it.

This project establishes a program of report cards that will enable communities in south eastern Michigan to become more informed, engaged, and influential in decision making that affects their health, environment, and social and economic well-being. Front photo by Kris Runstrom.
