The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

Celebrate Earth Day by making a visit to Monee Reservoir and helping to keep the preserve free of trash. Fishing line, as well as other debris, poses serious threats to wildlife. Animals often become entangled in the line, or can swallow hooks or bits of plastic. Help 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 the bag back to the concessions window and receive a free gift. 

This program runs daily through Sunday, April 28.
