The Illinois Prairie Path

Saturday, April 26th, 2014

9:00 AM – Rain or Shine

In observance of Earth Day 2014, The Illinois Prairie Path not-for-profit Corporation, has scheduled their Annual Earth Day Trail Clean Up for

Saturday, April 26th, Rain or Shine!

Volunteers are needed! Our goal each year is to clean up as much of the 62 miles of the Illinois Prairie Path as possible. Hopefully, we will continue to duplicate the same effective and extraordinary clean up that is done each year for Earth Day. We would like you to help us by rolling up your sleeves (but wear work gloves), and pick up litter along the trail. Please dress according to weather conditions, and join us on Saturday, April 26th.

If you, your family, co-workers and club organizations are interested in helping out, please contact one of the team coordinators listed below for more details and locations. However, any area along the IPP is subject to trash removal.
