Roadway Cleanup (9 - 11:30am)

Sponsored by Riverwoods Preservation Council (RPC)

A big “thanks” to all of you who regularly pick up debris on your property and road. The annual Cleanup Day is a group effort to pick up trash along the major Village roadways. Please remember to wear gloves and boots – plastic bags and safety vests will be provided. Get your entire family involved! After the cleanup, all volunteers are invited to the Village Hall for a free barbecue lunch. This is the fifth year that RPC will be running Cleanup Day. Please call Laurie Breitkopf at 847-945-7034 if you’d like to help.

Barbecue Party (12 - 1:30pm)

Following the roadway cleanup, stop in for your reward. A Village barbecue featuring burgers, hot dogs, chicken and much more. Free to all, the barbecue party is open to all Riverwoods residents. Meet with neighbors and visit with old friends at this annual event.

Ask the Forester (10am-1pm)

A forestry consultant from Urban Forest Management will be on hand at the Village Hall to answer your questions about trees. Information about all of the Village cost sharing programs will also be available.

Adopt a Friend for Life (11am-1:30pm)

Volunteers from Orphans of the Storm® animal shelter will be on hand to introduce you to a few great dogs that are hoping for their second chance in life.
