Protecting Our Water Resources

One of the ways to ensure the protection of our lakes, rivers and streams is to get out and enjoy them! Whether it is kayaking down the Clinton, fishing in Paint Creek , or biking along the Clinton River Trail there are plenty of activities that you can pack into a day or even an entire weekend. Visit the Clinton River Watershed Councils recreation resource page to help you plan your exploration of our watershed.
