Rouge Rescue 2017

Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 9:00am


Farmington Road between Ten and Eleven Mile Roads in Farmington Hills.

Every year since 1986, thousands of caring citizens have been part of the hands-on community effort to clean and restore the Rouge River watershed.  This year’s volunteers will clean debris in and around the river, remove buckthorn and other invasive species near the waterway, and also help with native wildflower and tree plantings in the park. 

The entrance to Heritage Park is on the west side of Farmington Road.  Once inside the park, turn left at the stop sign.  Park in the paved parking lot and check in at the tent next to the Heritage Park Visitor Center (Spicer House).

The first 50 participants to arrive and sign in outside the Visitor Center will receive a free Rouge Rescue t-shirt, and all participants will enjoy a free picnic lunch.  Volunteers are encouraged to wear long pants and long sleeves, as well as sturdy work boots.
