"Ghost River of Royal Oak" speaker program is being held on Wednesday, Jan. 4 beginning 7:30 pm at the Royal Oak Middle School (709 N. Washington).

Join Royal Oak Nature Society naturalist Bob Muller and explore Red Run then and now. Almost a century ago Red Run and its tributaries through Royal Oak, began to be covered over as part of our sewer system. For 15 years, Bob has been investigating where the river ran, what can still be seen on the surface and what is hidden from sight. We present this program every two years and new information keeps coming to light.

Since the last program the nature society has found photos of the covering of the Little Run in the 1920s and discovered that in the spring, the Red Run connected part of the Clinton River to the Rouge River.

Join us and learn about our latest findings.
