Beach Walk flyer

Quick reminder about a few upcoming events in our parks …

  • First, check out the Grant Park Beach Walk Saturday night. There is a flyer above.
  • Then, on Sept. 19, it’s the beach cleanup event. Learn more here
  • And on October 10, it’s an Oak Creek cleanup. More details from the Friends of the Mill Pond and Oak Creek Watercourse …

Set your calendar for Saturday October 10th, 2015 – we’ll be cleaning the Oak Creek from North Chicago Avenue west to Rawson Avenue.  (IF we have enough people we could continue to Nicholson Avenue)

We’ll be meeting at the North end of the SM High School parking lot. at 8:00 am and ending at 12:00 noon.  My car is a tan Hyundai Sonata with the license plate WUCK – this is where you’ll sign in, get a safety vest, bags, gloves and water.  Once everyone has signed in, we’ll take some pictures and give instructions.  We ask that adults be present with your groups, bring EXTRA CLOTHES, SHOES AND SOCKS in case you get wet or fall in.  We do have some boots that can be borrowed of if you have wader’s please bring them.  Milwaukee County Parts will pick up the bags along the route.

FOMP will host the luncheon at the Warming House after the cleanup.
