Who We Are: We are a group of volunteers raising money for the future River Center in Alpena. The River Center's mission is to preserve, protect, and interpret the Thunder Bay River Watershed. The funds will be used to construct a watershed and aquatic study center focused on the 1,250 square miles of watershed.
