|Upper DesPlaines Cleanup Trip||By Jeroen|
Where: US, IL, Independence Grove Forest Preserve , Libertyville
Volunteers are needed to assist with a river-cleanup along the DesPlaines River on April 30th, 2011. The Upper DesPlaines River Ecosystem Partnership (UDPREP), Lake County Forest Preserve District, and Illinois Water TrailKeepers are teaming up to clean up the DesPlaines.
Non paddling friends and family are welcome to join UDPREP, working along the shores of the DesPlaines. Activities on shore will include trash pickup and perh...aps some work removing invasive species. Land Crews plan on meeting at 9:30am. The on-land cleanup will run until approximately 12:30pm, or later if there is interest in the volunteers on continuing the activities.
Qualified paddlers are welcome to join us to clean up the DesPlaines river from Independence Grove. We will paddle upstream and downstream from Independence grove, removing trash from the river. Plan on unloading boats at the Independence Grove Canoe Launch at 9am. We will briefly meet up with the land-based crews at the North Bay Pavilion before launching to clean up the river. The River Cleanup may run longer than the on-land cleanup depending on river-conditions and the trash piles we find.♦
