The Fox River can’t defend itself. When its health is threatened, Friends of the Fox River speaks on the river’s behalf. The river can’t clean itself either. Participate in shoreline and on-the-water rescue cleanups from April to October.
Take a simple rejuvenating walk along the river. Paddle it, bike it, fish it—all with a watchful eye for trees, plants and wildlife. Join a canoe trip to make a physical connection to the river to better appreciate its beauty, habitat, and challenges.
Become a member, a volunteer “Watershed Watchdog.” Join the rescue cleanup crew. Monitor water quality—we’ll show you how. Provide a service, learn from an expert—teach, learn, plant, water, or weed at the Schweitzer Environmental Center.
Friends of the Fox River’s 2020 Calendar features winning photos from our 2019 annual Photo Contest. Each month’s photo is paired with a famous and inspiring quote about rivers.
Order yours online for mailed delivery on our Annual Calendar Sale page, or you can buy it in person at our Annual Members Meeting on Monday, Dec. 2nd or at our Holiday Nature Arts and Crafts Show on Sunday, Dec. 8th, at our Schweitzer Environmental Center in West Dundee.
