Fox River Events

River Clean-up Event in St. Charles
Saturday, September 16th! - It’s Our Fox River Day!

The Conservation Foundation and the River Corridor Foundation of St. Charles are partnering on a volunteer river clean-up event being held Saturday, September 16, 2023 from 9:00 – 11am.
Join us at Ferson Creek Park on Rte. 31 to show the Fox River some love!

Plan to arrive between 8:30 and 8:45 to pick up supplies, and get instructions. Come as a team of 3-5 people or just on your own!  We will be sending folks out to pick up trash at several locations along the river.  Land side and water side pick-up “teams” are encouraged, and we welcome canoes and kayaks to join the activities!

Please dress accordingly for this event and the weather, bring sturdy gloves, and wear boots or shoes that you don't mind getting wet. The Conservation Foundation will supply trash bags, grabbers and other trash pick-up tools. Precautions will be taken to insure social distancing as applicable. Bring a reusable water bottle. A Refilling station will be available at the pavilion in Ferson Creek Park.

Pre-registration for the event will be helpful to planning staff but drive-ins that Saturday morning are also welcome! The link to register may be found here: 
“It’s Our Fox River Day” river clean-up events for the 16th are being coordinated by Friends of the Fox River the length of the Fox.
