Visit Monee Reservoir and help keep our preserve free of trash.
Fishing line, as well as other debris, pose serious threats to wildlife when they become entangled in line, or swallow hooks or bits of plastic. Trash also obscures the inherent beauty of the preserve. Help us keep the preserves clean.
To participate, stop by the concessions window, pick up a trash bag and gloves, and fill the bag with any trash you collect. Bring it back to the visitor center and receive a free gift!
This program runs daily through Sunday, June 23. Visitor center hours are 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday. The facility is closed Mondays.
No registration is required for this program.
Sidewalks are easily accessible; trails are on natural, uneven terrain. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should call 708.534.8499 or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
