Time: 1:00 PM
Location: NIU Lagoon - 1425 W Lincoln Hwy (castle Drive) DeKalb, IL
Join us during National Illinois Waterways Cleanup Week to help clean trash out of our community treasure. The “Kish” is an amazing river, the south branch has its humble beginnings in Shabbona, IL and another branch starts in Woodstock, IL for over 60 miles and many winding turns eventually feeds into the mighty Rock River. We are thankful for the recreation opportunities from fishing to paddling. The Kishwaukee River is classified as a Class A river and is home to 28 endangered, threatened or watch-listed species. Let’s show this river some love and help protect this important resource.
We'll meet at the NIU East Lagoon, clean the Kish for a few hours and then enjoy a picnic afterwards!
There is no cost to participate in this event. If you have a group that would like to participate, please contact the NIU Recreation and Wellness at (815) 753-0231.
