Rogue River Watershed

The 234 square-mile watershed of western Michigan's Rogue River covers parts of five counties, although most of it is in northwest Kent County. Its waters join those of the Grand River just north of Grand Rapids, MI.  It is an interesting combination of warm water - fed by wetlands, surface and groundwater - and spring-fed coldwater reaches that support trout.  Its lower reaches have been designated a Natural River by the State of Michigan, and it has been named a Home River by Trout Unlimited.

The Rogue River Watershed Partners was established in 2001 as part of a watershed project by GVSU's Annis Water Resources Institute to help preserve and protect the watershed, educate, organize volunteers, and disseminate information about current issues within the watershed. The council holds regular monthly meetings, as well as special events and seminars.
