River Guardians

Kalamazoo River Watershed Council supports the Kalamazoo River Guardians, a local volunteer monitoring initiative in the Greater Kalamazoo area that participates in the statewide Michigan Clean Water Corps, or MiCorps monitoring program.

River Guardians is led by the Kalamazoo Nature Center with help from Kalamazoo College, Western Michigan University, Michigan State University’s W.K. Kellogg Biological Station, and the Kalamazoo River Watershed Council and many community volunteers of all ages.

Email Anna at the Kalamazoo Nature Center for more information.

Join us for the Spring 2016 monitoring event!

Meet at Merrill Park in Comstock at 9:00 am on Saturday, May 21, 2016.  You’ll receive sampling instructions, review a demonstration, and be assigned to a group and river location where you’ll collect aquatic bugs.  All groups will return to the Kalamazoo Nature Center to sort and count your catch and enjoy a free pizza lunch.

Join us this Fall 2016

Check back soon for the fall monitoring information or sign up to receive email updates from us.
