FirstService Residential Illinois currently manages close to 160 properties; of those, 9 are located on Lake Shore Drive and 74 are less than 1 mile from the Lake. Our FirstService Residential mission states we “deliver exceptional service and solutions that enhance the value of every property and the lifestyle of every resident in the communities we manage.” This extends to not just the buildings we manage but the neighborhood and what it has to offer, such as Lake Michigan and its many Chicagoland beaches that our homeowners visit.
The Alliance for the Great Lakes is more than just a simple beach cleanup. At each registered event, participants don’t just pick up trash, they become conservation biologists for the day. They are responsible for recording data of what and how much is collected. The data is then entered data into an online Adopt-A-Beach system, which is made accessible to the public and shared with local beach health officials as well as other city officials working towards beach and lake improvements.
The event is on August 3, 2018 9 am-12 pm
All garbage bags, gloves, pencils, and paperwork will be provided.
Location: Oak Street Beach, 1000 N Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60611
