This year the Friends of the Chicago River are celebrating 20 years of Chicago River Day with 20 days of events (sounds suspiciously close to my 50 for Fifty idea). Celebrate this amazing milestone with us through Chicago River Day 20/20, 20 days of events and activities that commemorate this milestone and get people involved. Click their logo on the right for more information about 20/20.
The good news is that The Friends of the Chicago River promoted me to site captain this year, and now I need help from my friends.
My location is on the west side of the Chicago River behind the Riverside shopping center at Archer & Ashland Avenues. We recently did a site visit and there is plenty of litter to pick up.
Use this link to sign up, read the disclaimers, print out & sign the waiver and bring it with you on May 12th.
Bring your grungiest shoes and outer wear, and get your hands dirty. Rain or shine!
P.S. If you can not make it to my location there 65 sites throughout Chicago, Cook County & Lake County that still need your help. Click here to find a site near you!
