Collecting with a netGeneral Information

The Watershed Community Report is supported by Friends of the Chicago River.  Here you will find water and habitat data about the Chicago River submitted by area schools.  As part of Friends education program, area middle and high schools can adopt sections of the river which they monitor and restore on an annual basis.

If you are a member school you can log in to submit your data as well as download data from other schools.  If you are just visiting, we welcome you to take a look at the data.  If you want to learn how your school can become involved with Friends of the Chicago River, visit www.chicagoriver.org.
