Improve Water quality
Allow public access and interaction
Since these goals were adopted, the Root River Council has partnered with area agencies to construct the 'Dawning' sculpture (1300 6th street), facilitated the completion of a 'river-district' property inventory, participated in the County-wide Root River Restoration Planning Group, facilitated the construction of a mosaic mural on the 6th street bridge, partnered to organize several public paddling events, and assisted with riparian restoration projects.
The approach Root River Council takes is to find individuals and organizations that do things well and propose they do those same things, well.... on the Root River. Take me to the River!
