Dear Teachers & Supporters of the Chicago River,
It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2010 Chicago River Student Congress. It’s a special conference where students have the chance to shine while learning more about the Chicago River and its watershed. Students will share their knowledge, experiences and enthusiasm with their peers and environmental professionals. Students attend informative workshops and view displays created by other students and by professionals from local non-profit and
government agencies.

Saturday, February 20, 2010 8:00 am – 12:30 pm
Amundsen High School 5110 N. Damen Ave., Chicago

This Year’s Theme: Cleaner Water for All! This year’s Congress will highlight the importance of water quality in the Chicago River watershed. From chemical measures, to the disinfection of the river, to biological factors such as dissolved oxygen and macroinvertebrates, we all have a vested interest in improving water quality. Workshops and exhibits should highlight your students’ varied experiences in improving water quality. We all play a vital role to safeguard the health of the river’s ecosystems, for all plants, animals, and people.
