Corridor Alliance

Flint River Corridor Alliance Becomes Chapter of Flint River Watershed Coalition

 

The Flint River Watershed Coalition is pleased to announce a merger with the Flint River Corridor Alliance. “The opportunities this merger brings are well-timed,” said Kathleen Gazall, FRCA Board President, “These two organizations have worked closely together since the founding of the Corridor Alliance in 2007. As a combined entity, we will be better stewards of our organizational resources and expand our capacity to revitalize the river at a time when our joint work on initiating the Riverfront Restoration in Downtown Flint is coming to fruition.”

“We are excited that the Corridor Alliance is now an official chapter of the Flint River Watershed Coalition,” said Rebecca Fedewa, Executive Director of the Flint River Watershed Coalition. “This decision is well-aligned with our mission to serve the entire Flint River Watershed. The merger gives us more capacity to work on community reinvestment in the Flint River Corridor without redirecting any resources away from the other communities in our watershed.”

Under the merger, effective January 1st, 2018, the Corridor Alliance became an official chapter of the Flint River Watershed Coalition. The Corridor Alliance Chapter will continue to work along the river corridor in the city of Flint with annual events such as Cycling Circles and the Flint River Flotilla, as well as with partnerships on projects like installing a Paddlers’ Landing at Mott Park Recreation Area. The Flint River Watershed Coalition continues to maintain its broader focus on all seven counties that make up the Flint River Watershed through projects such as water quality monitoring, the GREEN environmental education program, the Flint River Paddling Program, and annual Stewardship Day activities.
