The Cuyahoga River
The Cuyahoga River is known as the Burning River, Crooked River, and a National Heritage River because of its flaming past. The fire of 1969, on the Cuyahoga River, that propelled a national environmental movement and improved our nation’s waterways and water quality standards, is a historical fact known throughout our country. The Cuyahoga River plays a large part in our community, and we wanted to create a weekly series to show our river some appreciation. These facts are divided into three categories such as historical, geographical, and fun facts. We want this weekly series to shed some light on the fun facts you may not have known. Join AWR throughout this Cuyahoga River series and learn more about the river with a burning past! To follow along please make sure you’re following us on social media!
