Organize your own Chicago River Cleanup

The river provides critical habitat for all sorts of animals from migratory birds to beavers, mink, turtles and over 75 species of fish. It's health is rebounding after years of abuse, but litter remains a stubborn problem. Studies show areas without litter deter future littering, so one of the most important ways to deter littering is to clean it up. 

Friends of the Chicago River have a Litterfree Chicago River Toolkit to help you organize your own cleanup day!
