Grant announced by Clinton Streamkeepers


Do you have a water-related program/project in mind but have been unable to implement it due to lack of funding? The Clinton Streamkeepers has money available for water related programs/projects, large and small, in the Little Miami watershed in Clinton and Greene counties.

The Clinton Streamkeepers (a 501(c) 3 organization) is pleased to offer grant funds available from its Sture Fredrik Anliot Fund. This fund is “an endowed, restricted gift for the improvement of water quality in the Little Miami River and its tributaries in Clinton and Greene Counties of Ohio.”

Dr. Sture Fredrik “Fred” Anliot was a professor of biology at Wilmington College where he taught for 35 years. He was well-liked and highly respected by those who knew him, including colleagues and students. He studied the watershed extensively, authoring articles and the book “The Vascular Flora of Glen Helen, Clifton Gorge and John Bryan State Park.” He passed on Dec. 14, 2012 and his generosity is the basis of this grant funding.
