Creating a Watershed of Caretakers
Thank you for helping preserve the Fox River! Your financial or in-kind donations directly support our river protection efforts: education events, cleanups, stream monitoring, and habitat improvement.
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.
