Coming Together to Celebrate the Mill Creek's Revival

On Thursday, Nov 16th, friends of Groundwork Cincinnati gathered at the American Sign Museum to Celebrate the Mill Creek's Revival. The evening's program honored environmental pioneers Stan Hedeen, a founder of Groundwork Cincinnati and author of The Mill Creek: An Unnatural History of an Urban Stream, and Mike Fremont, a founder of both American Rivers and Groundwork Cincinnati. Current Groundwork executive director, Dave Schmitt, along with former executive directors of Groundwork and the Mill Creek Watershed Council of Communities, Robin Corathers and Jen Eismeier, joined Bob Irvin, president of American Rivers, to strike the Mill Creek off 1997's list of most endangered rivers. Guests enjoyed wonderful food from Sleepy Bee and the boogie woogie stylings of Ricky Nye. Donations made at the event will allow Groundwork to purchase a used truck to transport supplies for restoration projects, such as invasive species removal along the Mill Creek Greenway Trail. Groundwork Cincinnati would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all who attended, purchased tickets, donated, and sponsored the event and  to everyone who worked so hard to make it happen. There would be no celebration without you!
