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.
Join Friends of the Fox River’s Executive Director Gary Mechanic as he presents “The Legend of The Fox” along with a 30 minute film documentary and his personal recollections of Jim Phillips. Sunday, February 9, 2020 at our Schweitzer Environmental Center in West Dundee. Seating is limited. RSVP required.
