[ARCHIVED] Geneva NRC Hosting Fox River Clean Up Day

Natural Resources Committee Fox River Clean-Up Day 2017

The City of Geneva's Natural Resources Committee (NRC) is looking for some helping hands as part of the group's seventh annual Fox River Clean Up Day in late September.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday, Sept. 30. Volunteers can meet the committee at the south end of Island Park.

The NRC will provide garbage bags, water, snacks and boats to help haul away trash. Volunteers are encouraged to wear old clothes and sturdy boots/shoes for wading through the Fox River. They should also should bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat and hair ties as well as a second clean outfit and shoes to change into afterwards. Restrooms are available on-site.

The effort not only beautifies the Fox River, but participants also will enjoy the day outside with other river enthusiasts. The rain date for the Fox River Clean Up Day will be 9 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 7.

For questions or to RSVP participation, visit the Natural Resources Committee Facebook page or call NRC member Kevin Limbrick at 630-360-4070.
