Mission Statement

The mission of the Friends of the Shiawassee River is to Care, by maintaining and improving the health of the river; Share, by enhancing the community's appreciation and knowledge of the river; and Enjoy, by increasing recreational access and responsible use of the river.

Description

In 1996, the Friends of the Shiawassee River was founded by a group of individuals who wanted to continue the work of Owosso resident, Jim Miner. In the 1970's, Miner organized some of the first volunteer river clean-up events in Owosso. These events inspired a generation of river stewards, and ultimately the formation of the Friends.

The Friends of the Shiawassee River adopted a mission to Care, Share, and Enjoy the river. We Care by maintaining and improving the health of the river; Share, by enhancing the community's appreciation and knowledge of the river; and Enjoy, by increasing recreational access and responsible use of the river.
