EcoWalk, Fundraiser, On Milwaukee's East Side 9/13

Talk about a great event; Book this, and pass it on...

Eco Walk September 13th, 2009, 11 am

Join the UWM community, alumni, & neighbors for the first-ever Eco Walk. This walk will take you through the urban ecosystems & sustainable landscapes of UWM & Lake Park, while highlighting their unique features.

Even in the city, there are ways to encounter the natural environment.

By taking part in the Eco Walk, participants will experience the native woodlands of Downer Woods on the UWM campus, the Waterfall Ravine in Lake Park, and a rain garden at the North Point Lighthouse, as well as many other prairies and natural landscapes.

Register on UWM's Spaights Plaza, then enjoy breakfast snacks and pick up a free raffle ticket, making you eligible for the drawing of an Apple Laptop Computer.

All adult participants (18 years or older) will receive one free raffle ticket, but more can be purchased on the day of the event. The drawing will be held in the Marcia Coles Community Room in Lake Park (lower level of the Lake Park Pavilion) after the walk.

Extra raffle tickets will be available at $5 for one ticket or $20 for five tickets.

From Spaights Plaza, walk along a self-guided marked path through the UWM campus, Lake Park, & North Point Lighthouse grounds.

Interpreters will greet you at each special ecological site.

Finish with a hearty vegetarian chili lunch in the Marcia Coles Community Room. The walk will lead you there.

Proceeds support the UWM Sustainability Fund and Lake Park Friends.
