The Lower Grand River Watershed covers the lower portion of the Grand River that drains into Lake Michigan from Ionia County. There are many subwatersheds within the Lower Grand River Watershed (see map). You can find your watershed using the Find My Watershed tool. The Grand River is the longest river in Michigan, spanning 252 miles, and was named O-wash-ta-nong, meaning Far-Away-Water, by Native Americans who lived there prior to settlement.
Discover and restore all water resources and celebrate our shared water legacy throughout our entire Grand River Watershed community.
Our Vision for the Watershed:
Swimming, drinking, fishing, and enjoying our Grand River Watershed: Connecting water with life.
Trout Unlimited and Michigan Trout Unlimited are partnering again to host their semi-annual Stream Insect Monitoring Event to collect and analyze insects to determine stream quality in the Rogue River watershed.
