June 15, 2012, 3-5 p.m. at the Clinton County Courthouse boardroom in St. Johns (RSVP by June 12)

MGROW recently obtained tax-exempt status and wants to expand its mission beyond conducting the GRE every 10 years. We want to bring together local communities, watershed groups, and other stakeholders in the Middle Grand watershed toward a greater understanding of and stewardship for the river.

The meeting is open to local watershed groups, educators, governmental agencies, and any individuals with an interest in protecting and preserving our part of the Grand.

To RSVP, send an e-mail to reception [at] mitcrpc [dot] org, or call Kathy at 517-393-0342. Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
