Uplifting and Educational! Not to mention motivational! With the annual meeting's professional speakers concerning the Flint River Watershed to the Semi-annual Benthic Monitoring of our rivers and streams, FRWC Rocks!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the course of Benthic monitoring lab examinations.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do nothing at all.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The Benthic monitoring and annual meetings and the monthly activites that are offered.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very people and environmentally oriented.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change all of Mid-MIchigans' mindset on watershed health and overall environmental inprovements.

Ways to make it better...

Waders were provided.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Participation from existing members and adding new members/volunteers.
