Covid 19 did not deter volunteers

During the spring, summer and fall 2021 volunteers were not deterred by the COVID 19 Pandemic. Volunteers followed government guidlines and restrictions while keeping the watershed and surrounding areas litter free. The FPRW Board of Directors takes this opportunity to thanks each and every person involved. Hope to see you out at the 2022 sping cleanup. In the meantime keep checking our webside for new and updates. Have a safe winter.

Join Us and Others Making a Difference

By becoming a volunteer with FPRW you will be helping us achieve many goals that we’ve set fourth for a cleaner and healthy watershed.

One of the more well-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people, animals, and organizations in need. And volunteering is a two-way street: It can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.

FPRW has exciting project for the nature enthusiasts in our area!

The FPRW just created an iNaturalist project! We invite you to explore, discover and record all the wonderful living species that you find in the Porcupine River Watershed area.

FPRW and the RMSS Geography Class completed a Porcupine Lake trails clean up this morning. Thank you all for doing a great cleanup.

Students filled a dozen bags and were very helpful in making the lake area cleaner. We are all the keepers of the lake and trails. The Otter family put on a show for a few of the students and Mother Nature feels much better today. Community and caring.
