Keep the Sugar River Sweet & Clean

Do you love the Sugar River? Do you like to see it clean of refuse or full of trash? Do you like it free of dangerous treefalls & safe for our kids to navigate? If your answer to these questions is yes, then why not come out and join us on Saturday May 18th from 9am-4pm at our annual Sugar River Cleanup! We will have canoes available to use so basically it’s a FREE Canoe Trip where all you have to do is pick up trash or clear branches. Shuttle service will be provided for those that want to help, but don’t want to go on the water.

The Lake Winnetka Sugar River Improvement Association Inc. will hold its annual Sugar River cleanup in Albany WI. On Saturday May 18th 2023 from 9 am to 4 pm. We will meet at the Albany American Legion Hall @ 300 N Water St. across from the Boat Ramp near the Police/Fire station. Our goal is to remove as much garbage as possible from the river & its banks. We also want to clear a path through fallen trees that totally block navigation of canoes & create hazards. The type of work varies from walking the banks or riding in canoes & picking up trash to cutting tree branches & handing them to people on shore. Equipment needed is canoes or small boats, chain saws, bow saws & waders. The association will provide trash bags & local businesses will provide food & refreshments. We will get organized at 9am & begin cleaning up at 10am or sooner, however, a representative will be on premise at the Albany American Legion to direct those who want to come later. Our clean-up is registered with the American Rivers National River Cleanup. Scout groups can earn community service points by helping out.
PLEASE VOLUNTEER your help or equipment. You can contact us for more information by E-mail at or “Like” us on Facebook at or call 773-418-7123. Leave a message including your name & phone number & we will return your call.

Come on out & help us clean up while enjoying the great outdoors after a long dull winter. Food & refreshments will be served to all volunteers as a token of our appreciation. Hope to see you there!!
