About The Event
In 1992, Friends of the Chicago River hosted 25 volunteers for “Chicago River Rescue Day.” That small group “rescued” the river by pulling old shopping carts, mattresses, and plastic bags from its banks. Little did they know that day would continue year after year, evolving into Chicago River Day which now hosts thousands of volunteers at over 60 sites across the watershed.
Join CMAC as we help clean the Chicago River at the Canal Street Marina. This is the Chicago Maritime Arts Center's second year participating in this event.
