Service area: The headwaters of the Grand and Raisin watersheds in parts of Hillsdale, Jackson, Lenawee and Washtenaw counties (Michigan)
About us: Conceived to promote the science and art of land restoration, the Grand-Raisin Cluster (GRC) was formed in late 2002. Each year since, we have offered public workshops on subjects of interest to those who would explore and interact with native habitats.
Now the GRCC, we have two main areas of focus: 1) on the ground conservation action and planning, and 2) educating community members in conservation issues, techniques and other relevant topics. The GRCC provides unique educational opportunities through events, workshops, activities and online networking to share ideas, information, skills and resources to enable local groups to increase their capacity to care for local land and water.
