Otto the Otter in: "Otto's Great Watershed Rescue"

ottotheotterThe City of Pontiac is proud to support the Clinton River Watershed Council in its efforts to protect, enhance, and celebrate the Pontiac Creek Watershed, a tributary to the Clinton River Watershed. Our new mascot, Otto the River Otter, teaches children important lessons about identifying sources of pollution and demonstrates how they can be good stewards of our local rivers, streams, and lakes. We’ve developed a fun and informative video game that not only entertains, but also educates. Click on the link below to help Otto battle polluting monsters, pick up trash, and score points for the environment! We all need to do everything we can to keep the watershed clean.  This program was funded by a grant through the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment (MDNRE)
