A Celebration of Illinois Watersheds Through Education, Recreation, and Conservation

Education, recreation and conservation are important to the health of our rivers. They are interconnected like a river within its ecosystem. It is important to keep the history and culture of life along the river alive, to continue efforts to address the threats against its health, and to provide new and innovative ways to provide access to the waterways for recreation.

With this in mind, communities and organizations are invited to celebrate your river by offering citizens a chance to experience, learn and contribute to the health of the watershed by providing organized activities annually on the third Saturday in September.
