Chicago River Day 2018

Over the last two and a half decades, we have witnessed an incredible shift in the health of the river and how people care for it; our volunteers and sponsors help make this happen.

The event goes on rain or shine. In the event of thunder or lightning we will shut down sites. Come prepared with a poncho and waterproof boots. Every little bit of litter pick up makes a difference.


Registration is closed, but follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates. And, join us at the after-party hosted by Metropolitan Brewing. All Chicago River Day volunteers get a free pint.

For immediate volunteer queries, please contact Annette Anderson, (865) 599-1857.
