Save the date - July 8th, 9:30am
Join us on July 8th at the Kenosha Yacht Club. Event kick off at 9:45am! There will be a short walk (approximately one mile and suitable for strollers) and other activities, too! This event is co-sponsored by the Kenosha Community Sailing Center and the Kenosha Yacht Club. A love of Lake Michigan is the foundation for both of organizations and it's why they are supporting the Walk to Sustain Our Great Lakes.
LOCATION: Walk starts at the KYC parking lot (5130-4th Ave)
and is approximately 1 mile on paved surfaces suitable for strollers. Free! Learn about the Simmons Beach boardwalk, etc.
ACTIVITIES: Walk participants can climb the Lighthouse stairs for ½ price! Visit Kenosha History Center & Light Keeper’s house (always free). Tour the U.S. Coast Guard 45’ boat from 9:30-12:30.
Our first "day-hike" event at Grant Park was a wild success! We are excited to announce that we will be collaborating with the Friends of Lincoln Park in Milwaukee to host the second Walk to Sustain Our Great Lakes "day-hike" during their annual Spring Fest on May 6th! Lincoln Park has undergone immense changes and improvements over the past decade thanks to the efforts of local stakeholders, the Friends of Lincoln Park, the Wisconsin DNR, Milwaukee County Parks, EPA and Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. Once the location of contaminated sediments and degraded fish and wildlife habitat, the park has been revitalized! Join Julia and Alyssa for a guided tour of the park and the beautiful Milwaukee River!
