Request a Friends of the Rouge Rep for Your Event or Meeting

We love to see our watershed residents out in the community and will do our very best to meet your request(s). You may request representation from Friends of the Rouge for your “tabling” event or a presentation from a member of our staff or another speaker knowledgeable about watershed topics. Subject to staff and volunteer availability.

Requests will only be considered if made at least six weeks from the date of the event. All details must be finalized and booked with us no later than four weeks from the event.

Lead an educational activity for our group

At this time, we do not have the capacity lead a special activity for your group. We have many public volunteer and educational events throughout the year and highly encourage your group to get involved with one of our existing programs! Please sign-up for our email list or check our calendar page for details.

There are many incredible organizations in the watershed that may be able to lead your group in an activity. Please see below and check back for an updated list.
