Upper Jay Project Area 2 Construction Update

This project will create flood resilience and alleviate ice jams in the East Branch Ausable River.


Every dollar you give will be matched 1:1 by generous donors who have committed $50,000 in challenge funds. That's $100,000 to ensure resilient streams, safeguard water quality, protect biodiversity, empower stewardship, and support vibrant local communities. Unleash your generosity.


Our guided watershed tours are back for a fifth year. We are excited to continue to bring you free guided paddling, hiking, and interpretive programs in the Ausable watershed and beyond this summer, fall, and winter.

Our mission — is to help communities protect our streams and lakes.
