 A century ago, the Chicago River was designed into Chicago’s plan for its new sewer system. Upstream and down, communities used it as their back alleyway and ignored its health. Find out how things have changed and how the river is becoming a haven for people and wildlife, an economic engine, and a true community treasure. Presented by Margaret Frisbie, Executive Director, Friends of the Chicago River. In celebration of Earth Day.
