Upcoming Water Walks


Wisconsin River Water Walk – Estimated start date August 1st, 2018. Plan now to join us for all or part of this two week walk following the Wisconsin River. Throughout our walk we listen to the communities along the river. Everyone has a water issue and a water story. We help carry all of these stories downstream so that no story is in isolation. Together we will tell the story of the river. It’s never too late or too early to contact us about how we might connect with you when we walk through your community. Everyone is invited to walk with us for any length of time during the walk. Please read more about nibi walks and the walker protocols here. We cannot do this without your support. Click here to learn more about the many ways you can help us. For more information, please contact Sharon M. Day …
