Of mothers: Monitor with your Mother

SHARE Of mothers: Monitor with your Mother

For something truly different on Mother’s Day, I suggest joining Friends of the Fox River with their annual “Monitor with your Mother” event on Sunday.

Before going though, I would suggest knowing your mother well enough to know if she would enjoy it.

Event: Monitor with your Mother Sunday 5/9, 10am – 2pm Fox River Shores Forest Preserve Carpentersville For more information, contact Gary Swick 815 370 0026 Mothers Day is next Sunday; Forget the Flowers, Bag the Brunch, & Can the Candy Join us to try something different on Mothers Day. The 11th annual event has become a tradition for many local families as a way to celebrate their Mothers and our Mother Earth at the same time. Friends of the Fox River and Dundee Crown High School Environmental Science students invite families to attend their Monitor with your Mother celebration. It began as an activity for students to teach their moms how to monitor water quality. It now is an event attended by hundreds. Visitors will enjoy free food, music, paddling opportunities, children’s activities, and presentations by local governmental representatives and a few surprise guests. Students will offer the opportunity to take Mom down the Stream of Knowledge to learn about water quality and earn Mom a special gift. Children will enjoy Sno Cones & face painting. This year’s focus is the Energy/Water connection. Please join us and invite your friends. For more information, see the attached flyer, go to friendsoftthefoxriver.org events page, or contact Gary Swick 224 484 5173 or 815 370 0026. The location is on the East bank of the Fox River, North of Lake Marian Road, and South of Rt. 62.
