I&M Canal Cleanup Day


The Illinois and Michigan Canal State Trail is 62 miles from Joliet to LaSalle and is a popular recreational trail utilized by hikers, bikers and joggers. After the long winter, debris and litter have descended on the trail and banks of the canal. We would like to clean up the entire trail and would appreciate your church group, club, organization, or business claiming a section of the canal.



I&M Canal Clean Up is April 10 – April 25, 2021

1. Pick Your Place

There are 96 of trails, from Joliet to Lasalle. Contact us to reserve your section of the trail to clean.

2.  Gather Resources

Gather your resources, like bags and gloves – better if you can bring from home and reuse the bags, to not produce more waste

3.  Bring Your Group

Bring your team out for a morning or afternoon of Trail Clean-up. You can clean the trail during the week or over the weekend!

4. Send Pictures
