It was a beautiful day at a beautiful new venue, and we heard from so many people! See the story from Jim McCarty and weigh in via twitter @cuyahogarap or #cuyariver !


Question: What would you like to see as a 50th anniversary celebration in 2019?

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 going in. With the help of Jim White and the Port crews, EDG and our fabulous fabricators, and in partnership with ArcelorMittal, Lafarge, and the City of Cleveland who are letting us use their bulkheads, we're installing these and other habitats over the next few months.


October was National Neighborwoods Month.
Cuyahoga ReLeaf + Cleveland Metroparks + ACTrees + Volunteers =
new trees for Scranton Flats

Thanks to the volunteers who came out to plant 90 new trees at the Scranton habitat site. Thanks to the sponsors, Alliance for Community Trees (now a program of the Arbor Day Foundation,) and CSX. And thanks to whoever arranged for the most perfect fall weather and blue skies!
