Help us keep the lakes great

Help restore local habitats!
With your help, we can contribute to a healthier environment. Take a look a our Great Lakes Action Days and Adopt-a-Beach events to see what's the best fit for you.

Great Lakes Action Days
Check out our 2014 GLAD calendar.
Get your hands dirty maintaining trails, planting native flora and collecting important data through citizen science projects. Events are scheduled from June through October and held throughout the local Great Lakes area.

Adopt-A-Beach Events

In addition to this new initiative, Shedd will continue its Adopt-A-Beach™, the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ beach stewardship program. Comb the beach for garbage and recyclables to help keep the beaches clean and safe. Then enjoy Aurelio's pizza and be entered for a chance to win two VIP passes to Shedd.
