´╗┐Hosted by Friends’ Otter Society Committee, the mystical Ice Odyssey cruise will be aboard the majestic Odyssey Chicago River, a glass-enclosed and climate-controlled vessel. The Otter Society is Friends’ premier giving group which includes deeply committed river advocates and civic leaders who provide vital investment and support. Their commitment helps enable Friends to advocate for improving the health of the Chicago-Calumet River system, tackle the long term systemic problems it faces, and work every day to bring the river system back to life for people and wildlife.

 “We are very excited to host the second Ice Odyssey Cruise this February,” said Craig Coit, board member and chair of the Otter Society Committee of Friends of the Chicago River. “This unique winter cruise of the Chicago River is always a memorable experience with delicious food, cocktails, entertainment, and festive guests.”
