Cleanup and Advocacy


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.

Recreation and Education


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.
