Plaster Creek Watershed needs your help!
The Plaster Creek Watershed occupies approximately 58 square miles, all in metropolitan Grand Rapids, Michigan. The creek itself is about 14 miles long. Its headwaters originate south and east of Grand Rapids, with many of the tributaries coming from agricultural areas around Dutton and Caledonia. The creek flows through commercial and residential areas of the city, and finally through industrial areas and residential neighborhoods before emptying into the Grand River a mile south of the city center. Check the map to see if you live in the watershed! We would love your help in the next two years as we work to begin restoring this agricultural to urban stream.
We are holding an informational meeting for land owners and producers in the headwaters of the creek on June 27 at the FireRock Grille located at 7111 Kalamazoo. Please call or email to register for a free dinner and valuable, voluntary and confidential programs that are available to producers. Click here for full details. Hope to see you there!
