Neighborhood Clean Ups

Each month, we pick a different spot in the neighborhood to clean up. We walk around, pick up litter, clean storm drains, and chat. When we’re lucky, we get to meet neighbors we’ve never hung out with before. When we’re done cleaning, we pick a neighborhood spot to eat and get to know each other better. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for upcoming clean up events, and send us an email at if there’s a spot in Rogers Park you’d like to recommend for our next cleaning.

Pratt Beach - Sunday, July 13

We hit the beach after the 4th of July weekend to see if we could help out. Thankfully, the beach looked pretty good already and we concentrated our efforts on the grassy picnic areas. Here’s some of the crew taking a break.
