2019 Chicago River Day

Tags: River education

Over the last two and a half decades, we have witnessed an incredible shift in the health of the river and how people care for it; our volunteers and sponsors help make this happen.

The clean-up event goes on rain or shine. In the event of thunder or lightning we will shut down sites. Come prepared with a poncho and waterproof boots. Every little bit of litter pick up makes a difference.

Find a location and register here. Businesses interested in sponsoring this clean-up day, which attracts wide media coverage, should contact jdill@chicagoriver.org. More information about sponsorships can also be found here.
