The “One-Day” objective is to unite volunteers to participate in a hands-on service project to better our community. At the last cleanup event in 2017, there were over 350 volunteers who helped remove trash from in and around the Fox River, as well as north & south of downtown Aurora. The goal for the Fox River and nearby Fox Valley Park District locations this year is to have many dedicated volunteers come together once again to impact our community on April 7.
The Kiwanis Club of Aurora is partnering with Fox Metro Water Reclamation District, City of Aurora, Aurora Township, Fox Valley Park District, and other local agencies in conducting what we hope will be another successful cleanup event.
Volunteers are required to sign a liability waiver; youth under 18 must have a parent or guardian signed waiver. Adolescent groups are required to provide 1 adult supervisor for every 10 children.
Portions of the Fox River from Ashland Avenue to Illinois Avenue, including various Fox Valley Park District park locations will be the target area this year. Headquarters will be at the Cole Center located at 101 W. Illinois Ave.
Breakfast snacks will be available. An appreciation lunch will conclude the event back at headquarters. Please bring proper attire and dress for changing weather conditions.

Additional notes: On this day, Fox Metro will be present at the Aurora Transportation Center Parking lot (north end) collecting expired and unwanted medications. The mission of Fox Metro is to prevent improperly disposed of medications from entering our water ways. Use this opportunity as one more way to protect our environment.
