North Shore Channel


#LosetheLitter is Friends' latest project to make the river and its river-edge communities litter-free. Following the successful installation of water's willow and lizards tail plants in June and July along the banks of the North Shore Channel, the next phase will focus on clean up on and along the river. Friends will host litter pick up dates to collect trash and debris. Join us with our local partners in helping to clean the river, bring the wildlife back, and beautify the area. If you have a group along the North Shore Channel interested in doing a clean up, please contact Joanne So Young Dill, 

We are now recruiting volunteers to assist with a litter free workday.

When: Saturday, August 19, 9:00 am - 12:00 noon. 

Where: Harbert Park at McDaniel Ave. and Crain St. in Evanston

Ages 8 and up.
