River Trippin’ with Jenni
Join Jenni Kempf Schiavone, the Director of Education Programs Operations at FOTFR, on Sunday, February 12 at 12:30 pm at the Schweitzer Environmental Center for a presentation on her full-length Fox River paddling trip.
WHAT WE DO:
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.
WHAT WE DO:
Friends of the Fox River is creating a watershed of caretakers through our unique hands-on, science based, water quality educational programs to teachers, students and volunteers who desire to help protect the Fox River Watershed.
WHAT WE DO:
Friends of the Fox River works to engage local and state governments, planners, educators, property owners, and everyone who lives, works, studies, or plays in the Fox River’s watershed.
