Rubber duck will “race” around the Dawes Park lagoon this afternoon on waves created by volunteers with paddles in a fund raiser for the Evanston Environmental Association.

Money raised helps pay for care of the live animals at the Evanston Ecology Center. You can sponsor one duck for $10 or a “Quack Pack” of three for $25, and you can take your ducky home after the race.

The annual event, which draws lots of kids and their parents, starts at 3 p.m. at the lagoon, Sheridan Road at Church Street.
