Great Lakes Action Days – Help restore local habitats
The Great Lakes region is home to more than 3,500 plant and animal species and 40 million people. The lakes, rivers, wetlands, dunes, prairies and forests that make up the Great Lakes ecosystem are all our home too. Join Great Lakes Action Days or Adopt-a-Beach events, and give back to the wild places in your backyard.
Get your hands dirty cleaning beaches, removing invasive plants and collecting important data through citizen science projects. Events are held year-round at natural areas along our local Lake Michigan shore and throughout the Chicago metro area.
