Throughout the years, many dedicated volunteers have joined us in our many projects to help the environment and in particular, Lake St. Clair.
We have a simple mission: The St. Clair Shores Waterfront Environmental Committee is committed to the conservation, protection, safe use, and enjoyment of Lake St. Clair for our current and future generations.
Our Annual Meeting was January 18, 2018. We discussed our accomplishments in 2015, what we are doing in 2016, issues of importance, and awarded 3-$500.00 scholarships to very deserving students.
