    Chuck Jensen and Tom & Anna Croak teamed up with the Lake County Forest Preserve District's River Stewardship volunteers, to clean up the river from Rte 60 to Rivershire Park, in Lincolnshire.  Again.  After the flood, things changed.  15 tires, a round pink inflatable pool toy with a custom duct tape job, a safe, countless beverage containers, and more debris that was virtually unidentifiable was collected and pulled out of the river.  This was all left in two different locations along the river, and various jurisdictions' grounds crews will be picking it up Tuesday.  My best estimate is about 650lbs of trash...  

    Well done, and THANK YOU!!!!!
