Celebrate Estabrook Dam removal, free-flowing Milwaukee River on 5/31

It was a long time coming, so join Milwaukee Riverkeeper's party and support its work.
Estabrook Dam Removal Party
Thursday, May 31, 2018
5:30PM – 8:00PM
After over 10 years of tireless dedication, the Milwaukee River at Estabrook Park runs free again! 

Milwaukee Riverkeeper joined with community members, fisherman, property owners and elected officials to fight for dam removal, and thanks to all of these efforts, the Estabrook Dam has finally been demolished! We want to bring all “Dam Warriors” together to celebrate this moment in our community’s history and mark this generational milestone for the Milwaukee River.

Please join us for an evening by the river and across from the former dam site, and hear from those who worked so hard to make Estabrook Dam removal a reality.


5:30 p.m. –  Cocktail Hour
6:30 p.m. – Presentation with remarks from Riverkeeper Cheryl Nenn, County Executive Chris Abele, Mayor Barrett, Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District Executive Director Kevin Shafer
