Cuyahoga River Restoration

(formerly Cuyahoga River Community Planning)

Restoring, revitalizing and protecting the Cuyahoga River watershed and nearshore Lake Erie

The Cuyahoga River – 100 miles, 1,000 stories

It begins in springs and wetlands in Geauga County, just 30 miles from where it will end, and rests in reservoirs on its way south...

... to Kent, where it passes through the center of town...

... through forest and field to flow free through Cuyahoga Falls...

... where it drops through its deepest gorge...

... then takes a sharp northward turn to Peninsula and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park...

...under the Route 82 bridge...

... and into Cleveland, its last passage as a natural river...

... where it drops into the shipping channel...

... and around the bend past Scranton Flats...

... where new fish habitat brings feathered friends to dine...

... then around the next bend where people play...

... and finally past the Old River Channel...

... to empty into Lake Erie.
