Rouge River Revived with Dr. John Hartig
April 24, 2024, 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Rouge River Revived is an environmental history of the Rouge River, from Native Americans through industrialization and now revival. During the 1960s-early 1980s, the Rouge River was one of the most polluted streams in the Great Lakes Basin. Then in the mid-1980s, a “tipping point” occurred that would change everything. Author and presenter Dr. Hartig will tell the story that will inspire and give hope to all who work to restore and protect watersheds in the place they call home.
