About the event

Chicago River Day is Friends' annual watershed-wide stewardship day! This cherished community cleanup brings together volunteers at sites all over the region to improve the Chicago-Calumet River system for people, plants, and animals. Volunteer with your family, friends, company or group to build community while cleaning up your local waterway together. Then stop by one of our after parties to swap stories with other volunteers.
