Rouge Education Project

Friends of the Rouge logo 

Since 1987, the Rouge Education Project (REP) has engaged tens of thousands of students throughout southeast Michigan in learning about their local watershed by conducting hands-on water quality tests on an annual field trip to the Rouge River.  Students are then encouraged to share their results and take action to improve the local environment. A recap of 2014-2015 accomplishments is now posted on the REP portion of the Friends of the Rouge website.
