Seasonal Campaigns

Seasonal Outreach Campaigns assist our watershed group agency and associate members connect with their communities during each of the four seasons.

The communications tools and messages in the seasonal toolkits were developed to assist members of the Lower Des Plaines Watershed Group communicate seasonally appropriate messages to their residents as well as fulfill permit requirements for education and outreach.

The campaigns can be used in its entirety, or in pieces that best fit specific community needs. If you would like social media posts edited with your logo, we are happy to help. Feel free to edit blog posts and newsletter articles to best fit your community.

Check this page for routine updates throughout each season! Please contact our Watershed Education & Outreach Manager with questions or comments: Monica Rockstroh or 630-428-4500 x123
