Lower Fox River Clean Up

August 8, 2015 | 10:00am

Join us as we paddle a beautiful stretch of the Fox River, abundant in bird life with several small islands along the route. Using tools including grabbers, garbage bags, and gloves, we will clean up the river. This event is open to individuals, groups, and families with children ages 5 and up. Bring your own canoe or use one we provide.  A limited number are available to loan. 

Lunch is included at the take out (Silver Springs State Park).

This event is free but you must register in advance by emailing your name, phone number, number of people in your party, and whether you will be bringing your own boat(s) or want to borrow boats.  Email information to Laura Barghusen at

Meet at Freeman’s Sports at 129 E Hydraulic Street, Yorkville, IL 60560

This clean up is sponsored by Illinois Water TrailKeepers, a partnership of Openlands and Illinois Paddling Council and funded by REI.
