This video features Nate Haan, Project Manager for Plaster Creek Stewards, describing some of the challenges faced by communities in the Plaster Creek Watershed of Grand Rapids, Michigan (e.g. excess sediment build and E. coli contamination) and how the organization is creating partnerships between the upper and lower watershed communities, both rural and urban, to address these challenges.
Plaster Creek Stewards (www.calvin.edu/admin/provost/pcw) is a collaboration of
Calvin College faculty and staff. The organization sees its goal as working with local churches and community partners to restore health and beauty to the Plaster Creek Watershed.
