TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20 - 8am til 4pm


Spend the day imagining the future of the Cuyahoga River, meeting the folks who are restoring and planning for a newly-living river and watershed, hear about the growth in recreational uses and opportunities, and the impact that restoration is having on our region and communities. Where are we now and where do we go?


Take part in the discussion. Learn more.

Plain Dealer photo

Plain Dealer's James McCarty makes a shocking discovery and finds there's more to life (and more life) on the Cuyahoga

Yes, the two fish pictured above are perch, which are great to find in the river, but read his story in the Sunday 9/13 PD and on to see what else he found on his trip with NEORSD crews.

Hint: It starts with "wall" and ends with "eye."

Weeds on the way out - Kids get a lesson in managing invasive plants

Over the summer, campers at the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center at CVNP worked with park rangers, educators, and crews from the Student Conservation Association  to learn about invasive plants and how to eradicate them.

It's part of a two-year project to prevent and reduce invasive plants within the Cuyahoga River Watershed funded by a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Grant and managed by the Crooked River Cooperative Weed Management Area partners.

Habitats for Hard Places...getting ready to house homeless fish

Fish habitat structures are ready to go. With the help of Jim White and the Port crews and our fabulous fabricators, and in partnership with ArcelorMittal, Lafarge, and the City of Cleveland who are letting us use their bulkheads, we'll be installing these and other habitats over the next few months.
