Several dedicated volunteers have joined us throughout the years, participating in numerous projects and helping the environment and, in particular, Lake St. Clair.

 

We have a simple mission:  The St. Clair Shores Waterfront Environmental Committee commits to the conservation, protection, safe use, and enjoyment of Lake St. Clair for our current and future generations.


Our Annual Meeting occurs every January (2022 details to be determined), where we discuss our accomplishments, activities in the upcoming year, important issues, and award three (3) $500 scholarships to very deserving students. Link to 2018 presentation 2016 packet
