Be A Volunteer

We need you.

We have many volunteering opportunities!

Everyone’s help is needed to protect the Fox River and its tributaries. One of the best ways to protect the Fox River is to become actively involved in our organization. We invite you to pitch in at a Fox Rescue cleanup, join FOFR’s Watershed Monitoring Network and learn how to monitor water quality, lend a hand at one of our habitat improvement projects, and voice your concerns to our board members. Keep up to date on our events calendar.

Events & Volunteer Opportunities

"Keep on Fixin' the Fox"

Every spring and fall, we engage volunteers in Fox Rescue events hosted by Friends of the Fox River and other partners. Together, we remove tons of trash from the shores and waters of the Fox and its tributaries, plan water willows (some 7,000 to date), and remove invasive plant species. This initiative provides permanent habitat improvement for organisms that call the Fox River home, and helps reduce shoreline erosion.
