Picture of Sangamon River in Summer

The Upper Sangamon River Conservancy was established in the Spring of 2009, growing out of a grassroots effort by community members who are concerned about the Sangamon River.

Our purpose is to preserve, maintain, monitor, and promote public use and awareness of the Sangamon River.

Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the third Monday of each month throughout the year at the Mahomet Public Library and are open to the public.
