Earth Day Celebration at Montrose Beach

  • Montrose Beach 200 West Montrose Harbor Drive Chicago, IL, 60640 United States (map)

Chicago Group of the Sierra Club & Truman College Environmental Club have adopted Montrose Beach and invites members and friends to help clean up Montrose Beach, Chicago's nicest sandy shoreline, to honor Earth Day.This is a fun, relaxed clean-up of the biggest beach in the city. There is always a LOT of debris washed up on the beach from winter storms. And who knows what errant junk was trapped under all that ice over the winter? We cant help finding lots of birds, mammals and interesting plants.

Bring: For dress for the weather (it may be cold!), wear a hat and sunscreen, bring a filled water bottle and work gloves if you have them. Snacks, hot chocolate, coffee and water will be provided, but please feel free to bring a treat to share.

Additional Directions: Dogs are not allowed on Montrose Beach or in the nature preserve.

We'll be near the boathouse. If using GPS, searching for "The Dock" (the beachfront grill) works great.
