DuPage County River Sweep
May 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT
The annual DuPage County River Sweep is a county-wide self-coordinated stream cleanup held each spring organized by The Conservation Foundation. The purpose of the one-day river sweep is to encourage volunteer groups to help “sweep our rivers clean” by picking up debris in and along the local waterways. Over the past 30 years that this event has taken place, more than 9,000 volunteers have removed nearly 300 tons of garbage from DuPage County streams. The first River Sweep was held in 1991!
