Event details

Celebrate Earth Day and make the great outdoors even greater by collecting trash found along Monee Reservoir. Afterward, we will celebrate our accomplishments with a zero-waste/package-free snack around the campfire. Staff will share information about Monee Reservoir’s plastic-free initiative, bike upcycling partnership and fishing line recycling program. We welcome participants to share in a discussion of their ideas on how to go green in 2023 and celebrate Earth Day every day!
