  Because rivers wind through multiple towns and counties, no one place has complete control of their well-being. Occasional, localized projects cannot maintain the pristine nature of northern Michigan’s globally rare watersheds. What can be done? The answer is the CRA, (Conservation Resource Alliance) River Care Program. Here, individuals and businesses can invest in a professional program that plans and implements long term river care that crosses political boundaries. River Care is a pro-active program created to guarantee that natural resource professionals maintain a consistent and prioritized action plan for northern Michigan’s famed rivers and streams.
Paul studied Environmental Conservation & Communication at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI. Among the many topics he studied, Paul took a great interest in issues concerning the Great Lakes watershed. After graduation, Paul served as a Huron Pines AmeriCorps member with Headwater's Land Conservancy and his roots in the nonprofit sector grew from there. Currently employed by the Conservation Resource Alliance Paul enjoys helping coordinate watershed protection projects that fulfill a sense a responsibility to protect Michigan irreplaceable natural resources. In his free time, Paul enjoys playing guitar, kayaking, hiking, creating and telling stories through videos and supporting his local community through volunteerism.
