[ARCHIVED] 21st Annual DuPage River Sweep

The Conservation Foundation is seeking volunteers for the 20th Anniversary of the DuPage River Sweep on Saturday, May 19th from 9 AM to noon at various locations along the DuPage River and its tributaries. The Foundation's goal is to make this the most successful DuPage River Sweep yet! The River Sweep is an easy and fun way to "Go Green" this spring.

The annual DuPage River Sweep is a county-wide self-coordinated stream cleanup held each spring that encompasses the East and West Branches of the DuPage River and Salt Creek, as well as many tributaries. The purpose of the River Sweep is to encourage volunteers to help "sweep our rivers clean" by picking up debris in and along their local waterways and by restoring nearby land back to its natural state. Last year over 600 volunteers collected nearly 9 tons of debris!

Those interested in participating or looking for more information should visit for a complete list of cleanup and restoration sites and to register for the Sweep. The 2012 DuPage River Sweep brochure (which contains registration information) is available below.
