Who speaks for the river?
Anytime we’ve needed her, the Little Miami River has been there.
She has flowed through our history, peaceably.
She is the thread that has woven the people, places and stories of the Little Miami Watershed into a bright and colorful tapestry of legacy and hope for the future. The river is the backdrop to our adventures, the guidepost of our present and the pathway to our future.
The stories she tells bind us together in ways that cut through our differences and pull us together as a community.
She stands for us. But who stands for her?
If you listen, the river has quite a story to tell.
In one year, the community surrounding the Little Miami River made:
836,000 trips to the 45 sites along the watershed.
This led to a total recreational impact of
$14.9 million per year.

You can make a Difference
More than any other activity, people are hiking, walking, paddling and riding bikes along the river, just to take her in and enjoy the environment.
People love the river, as she is.
Now more than ever, the river needs someone to speak for her. Someone to look out for her and protect her. The Little Miami River needs someone to stand for her now, so she can continue to stand at our sides for generations to come.
Can we count on you to stand for the Little Miami River?
The Little Miami Watershed Network is working to speak for the river and protect her for years to come. Can we count on you to support our mission?
Since 2010, we’ve pulled out more than 29,700 pounds of trash and about 1,029 tires from the river. We’ve worked to keep the river clean and sustainable. We’ve told her story and represented her voice, passionately working to welcome the community and protect her future.
Stand with us. Lend your voice to the cause. Help us speak for the river.
