 Education and Activities

 

 

Chlorides & Winter Deicing

Winter deicing activities account for a vast amount of chlorides that reach our rivers and streams. Chlorides can be harmful to aquatic life. There are many Best Management Practices that can be implemented at community, development and residential levels to help reduce the amount of road salt getting into our streams while still maintaining public safety.

Public Service Announcement & Poster Contest

The Coalition is hosting its first and hopefully annual poster and PSA contest to raise awareness about water quality in the Lower DuPage River Watershed.  All students are welcome to participate - prizes will be awarded at the elementary, junior high, high school and college levels.

Workshops & Seminars

The Coalition, in partnership with the DuPage River Salt Creek Workgroup and The Conservation Foundation, hosts several technical workshops each year. Check our Upcoming Events page periodically to find local workshops.

DuPage River Sweep

An annual rive clean-up event through DuPage County and down through the Lower DuPage River watershed.

DuPage River Sampling Day

The Coalition coordinates a bioassessment of the watershed every three years. During that summer we host a River Sampling Day and invite members and the public to come and watch the crew from Midwest Biodiversity Institute sample for fish.
