Protect Your Right to Access Waterways

Send a letter to your state lawmakers to pass legislation to protect your right to access riverways. An Illinois Supreme Court ruling recently noted that access to riverways should not be unreasonably restricted and called on the Illinois General Assembly to legislate our right to our shared naturally occurring rivers and streams. Illinois HB 1568 was introduced recently to guarantee Illinoisans the right to recreate on Illinois’ shared rivers and streams. Misinformed attempts have been made throughout Illinois to restrict access to these important bodies of water, which will negatively affect both recreational activities and local businesses with an interest in outdoor recreation. Send your lawmaker a letter today
