Magnets for Earth Day 2021


This Earth Month – Act Locally!

Starting with your backyard Rouge River

Thanks to the caring actions of people like you, the Rouge River has come a long way. Kind-hearted people like you make a better future possible. Your gift matters. You can take action for a better river. There is a river of possibilities for you to make a difference!

What will Your Legacy be this Earth Month?

You can make a giant difference for the children, frogs, fish, and butterflies that call your Rouge River watershed home! In thanks for your gift – for any of the impact areas below – you will receive a special gift from Friends. Make your gift today, while supplies last! See details below!

Frogs, Toads, Fish & Bug Monitoring

Frogs, toads, fish, and bugs tell you a lot about the health of your river.

Support these special critters and the caring volunteers like you who track them to measure the Rouge River’s health in your neighborhood.


Student River Education

You can bring students to their local bend of the Rouge for river education!

Donate today and power connections between kids and nature, reduce equity barriers for access, and pave the way for river science that has meaning!

Rain Gardens, Flowers & Butterflies

Butterflies, songbirds and beauty!

All come part and parcel with your gift for new Rouge River rain gardens. Cleaner water, less street flooding, and a healthier river are just bonuses!

Rouge River Water Trail

The first river trail along the Rouge is in the making!

You can power river experiences – paddling trips in canoes and kayaks for all skill levels and abilities. You can help trailblaze new paths on land and water at your Rouge River!

Where it is Needed Most!

Your Friends will put your gift to work, where it is needed most, to better your river and your community.
