Project Summary

The Flint River Watershed Coalition, along with the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, will build access on the Flint River in downtown Flint. This stretch of river is valued for its walleye, bass, pike and pan fish fisheries, all of which are underutilized due to limited safe access. The site also will provide invaluable connections to the existing accessible river access site 2.2 miles downstream as well as access and river improvements underway upstream through downtown Flint.
