This year’s annual DuPage River Sweep gets under way Saturday, 5/19 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The Sweep is organized by The Conservation Foundation and supported by DuPage County Stormwater Management. Over 12,500 volunteers have removed nearly 270 tons of garbage from DuPage County waterways since the event was launched in 1991. Joining hundreds of volunteers across the county, our crew will return to the West Branch to work on the popular section from Winfield’s Lions Park to the Mack Road canoe launch. Contact Ray or Kathi for details.
Lions Park in Winfield is two blocks west of Winfield Road on Beecher St., just south of the Metra RR tracks. Car shuttle at 9:00 a.m.
