It's almost time to sweep our rivers clean! The 32nd Annual DuPage County River Sweep is taking place on Saturday, May 20th from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The River Sweep is a county-wide self-coordinated stream cleanup held each spring. The one-day event encourages volunteer groups to help “sweep our rivers clean” by picking up debris in and along local waterways. Over the past 30+ years, more than 14,000 volunteers have removed nearly 300 tons of garbage from DuPage County streams.
Register your volunteer group or join a community group to make a difference right here and right now! Learn more about other ways to keep our rivers clean, including the Adopt-A-Stream program.
