Huron River Renaissance Subject Of Mini-Documentaries


The Huron River Watershed Council's "RiverUp!" stewardship program is the subject of three new mini-documentaries.  The films focus on efforts to preserve the future of the Huron River and the people doing that work.

Huron River Watershed Council Deputy Director and "RiverUp!" Director Elizabeth Riggs says the first of the short films highlights fly fishing on the Huron River by telling the story of Depot Town businessman Mike Schultz and his love of fly fishing.

"We feel like that story of Schultz Outfitters and Mike's conservation ethic and interest in really building local community around fly fishing on the Huron is the perfect story of how RiverUp!, the Huron River renaissance, is meant to happen," Riggs says. 

Films being released later this fall and winter will focus on other areas in which the future of the Huron River is being secured along the watershed.
