Do you have fish or other aquatic pets that you can’t keep? Releasing aquarium pets can hurt them and the environment. Bring your goldfish, clams, and snails to the Evanston Ecology Center on October 14, from 10 am to noon during Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant’s aquatic pet take back event. For more information visit ReleaseZero.org.

  • Only fish and aquatic invertebrates (e.g., crayfish, snails) will be accepted.
  • No penalties for turning in regulated species.

If you don’t have a pet to turn in, come anyway to check out animal exhibits sponsored by the Aquarium Fish Sanctuary and the Chicago Herpetological Society. The Evanston Ecology Center is located at 2024 McCormick Boulevard.
