Adopt-a-Stream Annual Clean-Up

The Downers Grove First United Methodist Church has adopted a section of St. Joseph Creek located north of Curtiss Street and east of Walnut Avenue about two miles west of our church property. On Saturday, May 21, we’ll gather to clean up the creek by picking up trash along the banks. Please mark your calendar to come and volunteer!

The Adopt-a-Stream program is administered by DuPage County in partnership with The Conservation Foundation, a local nonprofit dedicated to preserving natural areas and rivers and promoting stewardship of the environment. The May 21 clean-up day will be part of their annual DuPage River Sweep. 

The only things you’ll need to bring are waterproof boots (or shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy) and work gloves if you have them. Tools, water and snacks will be provided. This is a great activity for kids to participate in with a parent or guardian.

Sign-up sheets are located on the bulletin board in the narthex, or you can email Vera Miller at to RSVP.
