Volunteers at Kingfisher Bluff, on the west side of the HFC campus adjacent to the Rouge River.

Despite the day beginning with rain, more than 15 staff members and friends spent several hours Saturday, May 18 assisting with Rouge River watershed cleanup and beautification on the west side of campus. Team members from facilities, enrollment services, financial services, information technology, marketing and communications, and other areas assisted in the effort.

The group worked along paths, in wooded and natural areas, and along the riverbed to fill a 30 yard dumpster with invasive plants and to remove almost 150 pounds of trash.

The Rouge Rescue is an ongoing effort that takes place throughout the year all along the river. The annual event adjacent to HFC takes place in the spring.
