Rivière28 is an auxiliary group within the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy that organizes fun and inviting experiences on the riverfront and Dequindre Cut for active professionals who live, work or play in the City of Detroit, while cultivating a new generation of supporters for the Conservancy.

 Rivière28 aims to raise awareness of the Conservancy and its mission to develop public access to Detroit's international riverfront from the MacArthur Bridge on the east to the Ambassador Bridge on the west. As the permanent stewards of this public space the Conservancy is responsible for the construction as well as the year-round operations, maintenance, security and programming of the riverfront and the Dequindre Cut.

Please come out and join Rivière28 at its special events to support the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy!
