Algonquin To Hold Fifth "It's Our River" Saturday
It’s Our River Day, a statewide celebration, kicks off in Algonquin with speakers at 1 pm.
At 2 the cleanup begins. New this year, the Illinois Water Trailkeepers from the Illinois Paddling Council and members from the Prairie State Canoeists will conduct an in-river clean up between Cornish Park and Buffalo Park. The Sierra Club will provide bags and gloves for the shoreline cleaning.
For more information, contact Katie Parkhurst, Algonquin Senior Planner at 847-658-4184.
