Chicago River Day
Chicago River Day 2016
Chicago River Day, our flagship river clean-up event, was a resounding success thanks to over 2,500 volunteer who came out on Saturday, May 14, 2016. Friends' annual metro-wide volunteer day spans the river’s 156-mile system. Volunteers worked along the river banks and removed tons of litter and sorted out recyclables, but they also supported construction of river trails, removed invasive vegetation, and planted native plants. With over 60 locations to choose from, we were excited to see so much action along the river this spring for Chicago River Day!
Stay tuned for next year's year Chicago River Day- Saturday, May 13, 2107. We are planning big for our 25th annual Chicago River Day.
