Hubbard Helps: Chicago

Friends of The Chicago River

Since 1979, Friends has been working to improve the health of the Chicago River system for the benefit of people, plants and animals; and by doing so, has laid the foundation for the river to be a beautiful, continuous, and easily accessible corridor of open space in the Chicago region. The organization’s work also includes education and outreach programs that inform and inspire people to help revitalize the Chicago River. As a result, the Chicago River is becoming a haven for wildlife and a treasured community resource. With us this morning to talk more about Friends of the Chicago River and the work they are doing for the River, wildlife, and people of Chicago is Margaret Frisbie, the Executive Director of Friends of the Chicago River.
