The annual Duck Race and Pluck is a "fun-raiser" for theEvanston Environmental Association, which supports the City of Evanston's Ecology Center. Rubber ducks travel around the Arrington Lagoon in Dawes Park on waves created by volunteers with paddles. Funds raised from the event go towards the Evanston Ecology Center’s resident "critters."
Sponsor one duck for $10 or a “Quack Pack” of three for $25. The fastest ducks and those lucky ducks plucked from the brace will win prizes for their sponsors. You may take your ducky home after the race. For more info. or to reserve your duck(s), please call 847/448-8256.
