Sugar River Clean Up
Volunteer on Saturday, May 18th
May 16, 2019
The Lake Winnetka Sugar River Improvement Association Inc. will hold its annual Sugar River cleanup in Albany, on Saturday, May 18th, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We will meet at the Albany American Legion Hall at 300 N. Water Street, across from the Boat Ramp near the Police/Fire station. Our goal is to remove as much garbage as possible from the river and its banks. The type of work varies from walking the banks or riding in canoes and picking up trash to cutting tree branches and handing them to people on shore. Equipment needed is canoes or small boats, chain saws, bow saws and waders. The association will provide trash bags and local businesses will provide food and refreshments. We will get organized at 9:00 a.m., and begin cleaning up at 10:00 a.m. or sooner, however, a representative will be on-premise at the Albany American Legion to direct those who want to come later. Our clean-up is registered with the American Rivers National River Cleanup. Scout groups can earn community service points by helping out.
