“Water Your Wellness”
2022 Lincoln Creek Greenway Summit
Saturday, June 25th, 9 am to 4 pm
Last winter, Nearby Nature hosted a series of “Lincoln Creek Conversations” to connect with stakeholders and prepare for this one-day summit. We want to bring everyone together to focus on key issues and potential paths forward, for revitalizing and renewing the Lincoln Creek Greenway. This is an environmental justice initiative of Nearby Nature Milwaukee.
