River Action Days

These days, more and more companies are looking for ways to give back to the local community - and Friends of the Chicago River is the perfect place to do that. Friends can provide a river-edge volunteer experience for your employees as they improve the health of the river during a customized River Action Day. There is a variety of activities and many sites to choose from, and while lasting for about three hours, a River Action Day is the perfect way to break up a work week. We also offer really fun add-on activities, such as canoe trips, chemistry testing, and macroinvertebrate sampling. 

As part of our ongoing relationship  with Friends of the Chicago River, MillerCoors truly valued River Action Day as a great opportunity for employee engagement and to help the local environment.  Our staff enjoyed the variety of activities, including working alongside and even in the river, and making a difference in the community we work.
