Friends of the Rouge is currently working with the ten communities and Wayne County to develop a water trail along the Lower Rouge from Canton to the Detroit River. Meetings are held every other month on the third Thursday. Email email@example.com if interested.

A signage package has also been developed.
The water is generally safe for boating if there has been no heavy rain or snowmelt; swimming is not recommended.
The Lower Rouge River Water Trail is a consortium of interested groups and communities and is a project of the Lower Rouge River Water Trail Leadership Committee. Contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
With concerns for the health of our program participants, staff, volunteers and community, Friends of the Rouge physical offices at PARC will be closed through the end of April.
Our team is working hard to deliver virtual opportunities to engage with your local Rouge watershed.
Many thanks to our extraordinary community as we work to adjust in these unprecedented times.
