Actively promote the sustainable use of our natural resources by supporting, promoting and implementing conservation measures throughout the Township.
Adopt a Stop
Please join with Clinton Township, Green Macomb Initiative, and ReLEAF Michigan for tree planting at parks and Gratiot Avenue bus stops.
On September 29, 2018, members of the Conservation Committee joined Members of the Arboretum Committee for their Annual Arboretum Tree Planting. First, we had to meet our twice a year commitment to counting water bugs in the Kukuk Creek that runs through the Arboretum.
The Clinton River Watershed Council (CRWC) created the Adopt-A-Stream program several years ago, as a way to gauge the water quality in the creeks, streams and drains that feed into the Clinton River and eventually into Lake St. Clair and the Great Lakes.
These photos were from our fall bug count, where, unfortunately the count tells us the quality was fair to poor.
Special thanks to Amanda, from the Macomb County Public Works office and formerly of the CRWC, who provided us the training and technical expertise on how to collect the samples, know what we were looking at and how to collect the data. Also, special thanks to Sydney Chabot, the daughter of Scott Chabot, Conservation Committee member, Township resident and Civil Engineer with the firm, Anderson Eckstein and Westrick.
