WHAT WE DO:
The Fox River can’t defend itself. When its health is threatened, Friends of the Fox River speaks and acts on the river’s behalf. The river can’t clean itself either. Participate in shoreline and on-the-water river cleanups from April to October.
WHAT WE DO:
We are building a watershed community of caretakers through providing hands-on, outdoor learning experiences throughout the Fox River Watershed.
WHAT WE DO:
We want to engage with diverse members of the hundreds of watershed communities. If you live, work, study, or play in the Fox River Watershed, your perspective matters to us. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube. Subscribe to our newsletter. Volunteer. Donate. JOIN US!
