Saturday March 24: Winter cleanup

16 Mar

Please join us on Saturday March 24 (10am-12pm) for the first restoration workday of the year at Rainbow Beach Dunes! We will take a nature walk to see which early spring flowers are already blooming. We’ll also pick up the trash that has been tossed high on the beach all winter.

We’ve got lots of events at Rainbow this year, and lots of interest from new volunteers and partners. Stay tuned for a complete schedule. For now, I’d like to thank Chicago Conservation Corps (C3) for featuring our event this month and to welcome Urban Sustain and Noble Network of Charter Schools who will be sending groups out to help!

Rainbow Beach is located at 3111 E. 77th St. By foot, walk east from South Shore Dr. on 77th St. By car, enter from 79th St., go past the water treatment plant, and park in the first parking lot. Parking passes are available. Please meet at the nature area, which is located at the southern end of the beach. Tools and equipment will be provided, but please bring water and dress appropriately for the weather. Contact Alison Anastasio at
for questions and to RSVP.
