About Us

The Ausable River Association

Formed by the community and focused on our watershed since 1998, the Ausable River Association (AsRA) is the community's voice for the river: your voice.

  • We're advocates for clean water, healthy stream and lake habitats, for brook trout and the myriad native species that depend on the river.
  • AsRA programs provide resources to anglers, boaters, and other recreational users; we monitor the river and share our scientific data to understand changes and find solutions.
  • We share our knowledge freely with young and old, landowners, municipal employees, and technical experts - through workshops, events, and one-on-one.
  • We restore streams to their natural function, repair damage to banks that threaten homes and businesses, and retrofit and replace culverts to reduce road damage and ensure fish passage.

We work cooperatively with a wide array of organizational partners, often behind the scenes and far from the limelight. Like the river, we're the force connecting the diverse parts.

We dream big, plan carefully, and then get good work done. Join Us
