The Rouge River Home Rivers Initiative was started by Trout Unlimited to move volunteers to help to protect, restore watersheds and to build a connection with the community. The organization deals with urban issues in West Michigan pertaining to the cold water fishery located near the area.

A cold water fishery is a trout fishery that in July has a temperature less than 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Rouge River Home Rivers Initiative is working on protection of the cold water fishery using restoration efforts, controlling storm water runoff with rain barrels and setting aside land for conservation.

You can learn more about local cold water fish and the Rogue River watershed-based restoration project on the Trout Unlimited website.

“A Watershed Moment” is a weekly radio program focused on environmental news and happenings in West Michigan, plus solutions for living a greener life.

Broadcast on WYCE-FM 88.1 on Tuesdays: 8:30am and 5:30pm, this program is produced by Grand Rapids Community Media  Center and the West Michigan Environmental Action Council.
