Join us for an exciting morning along the banks of the Chicago River.
Volunteers will work side-by-side to collect garbage and sort for recycling, remove invasive vegetation, spruce up river-edge trails, plant native seedlings and more. If you have any questions about this site and what activities will be happening, you can put your questions in the box labeled "ask my site captains."
