Organize a River Cleanup


On Saturday, September 21, 2019, Friends of the Fox River will coordinate the first river cleanup on the entire Fox River from Waukesha, Wisconsin to Ottawa, Illinois in collaboration with organizations and communities throughout the entire Fox River watershed.

Do you love the Fox River? Does seeing trash along it’s banks bother you? Do you want to do something about it? You can host a river cleanup in your community and Friends of the Fox River will help.

Friends of the Fox River will work closely with you to help you plan,
produce and publicize a river cleanup in your community.

We can:
* help you plan a river cleanup and community celebration
* help you apply for a special event permit
* provide required event insurance for your cleanup
* help you publicize your cleanup
* recruit, register, inform and thank volunteers
