Adopt-a-Stream Volunteer Clean-up Day

Saturday, June 22; 9:00 a.m.
Join the Environmental Stewardship Work Area for a fun nature adventure that will make a difference! This year we will be trying out a new stream clean-up site for our church through The Conservation Foundation’s Adopt-a-Stream program. We will be picking up trash to beautify a section of Prentiss Creek that runs along the south boundary of Downers Grove South High School. Wear your boots or shoes you don’t mind getting muddy! Adults and ages 7+ with an adult are welcome!
