This year we have started a new campaign to spread the news about things you can do to help restore the Rocky River! We are asking you to Take Action: In Your Yard, By Your Backyard Streams, and In Your Community to benefit the Rocky River and its tributaries.

 

Pledge to take watershed friendly actions in your yard and actions in your community to become a Rocky River Watershed Champion and earn your very own Rocky River Watershed Champion sign for your yard! The signs measure 8" x 8" and come with a metal stake for placement in your yard.

 

The pledge form can be filled out online here, or you can request a paper form by emailing jbartley@cuyahogaswcd.org.  Participants who send a picture of their Champions sign installed in their yard will be entered to win their choice of a rain barrel or a native seed packet.
