Tags: Ticketed events and River education

Get on the Chicago River on Earth Day, Monday April 22.

Be a part of the inaugural Original Earth Day River Cruise from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This fun and interactive lunchtime tour will navigate through the heart of the city on all three branches of the Chicago River and will include hands-on water quality sampling, litter clean up, spotting wildlife sights and sounds, and celebrating new ecosystems that didn’t seem possible, such as the innovative Wild Mile, the world’s first floating eco-park.

We are so pleased to be partnering with Wendella Boats as we celebrate the inspirational story of the Chicago River’s recovery on Earth Day.

Tickets are $25 and include a light lunch. Students and non-profit partners are $10. Beverages are available for purchase on the boat.
All ticket revenue will go to Friends to support habitat restoration, water quality protections, and public outreach.

Purchase here.
