For over three decades, Friends of the Chicago River has helped create a greener, more accessible, and better cared for river. Friends is a nonprofit organization.
An outdoor adventure is closer than you think…
Why travel afar when you can experience rich wildlife and urban adventure in your own backyard? Friends of the Chicago River offers guided group tours of several sections of the Chicago River. Experienced and knowledgeable river guides, paddling skills training, shuttle service (when needed), and equipment (canoes, paddles, personal flotation devices and dry bags) are provided by Friends of the Chicago River.
