The Rocky River Watershed Council's purpose is to protect, restore and perpetuate a healthy watershed through public education, watershed planning, communication and cooperation among stakeholders. We are the only organization dedicated solely to the protection and restoration of the Rocky River Watershed.
TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE! We're happy to announce the RRWC's 2023 fundraiser, our "Summer Rocktoberfest"! Come join us on Friday September 8th at Redwing Picnic Area in Hinckley for an evening of food, drink, raffles, and so much more.
Family friendly (must be 21+ to drink but all can have fun and food!)
We'll have a speaker from Cleveland Metroparks talk about the upcoming drainage of Hinckley Lake, dam restoration, and plans for when it will be finished. We'll also have nature tours where you can learn about protecting the natural beauty of our environment - all while enjoying a tasty dinner and local brews.
Raffle baskets will include: a rain barrel and diverter kit, four (4) Cleveland Metroparks golf passes (thank you Cleveland Metroparks for your support!), T-shirts, and more!
All the funds raised will go towards restoration projects and educational efforts in 2024
Tickets are $25 (includes a catered dinner and two free drinks) or $20 for those under 21yo (includes catered dinner). Raffle tickets must be purchased separately. Raffle tickets can be purchased beforehand with entry ticket or at the event itself.
