On Saturday, May 11th, the Chicago Maritime Arts Center (CMAC) led river cleanup at Canal Street Marina as part of Friends of the River’s Chicago River Day from 9-Noon.  A great group of UIC and U of C students joined CMAC volunteers to remove an entire dumpster full of debris - plastic, cans, bottles, drift wood, etc. from the Chicago River.  Everyone involved enjoyed the morning working together and special thanks should be given to Canal Street Marina for providing pizza for volunteers after the event.
