This summer, Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers is offering a FREE series of environmental workshops focused on the transformations happening in the Kinnickinnic River neighborhood near Pulaski Park. The workshops will help residents better understand the impact of the changes, and how they can play a part in using these new spaces.
Community members enjoyed the first workshop this past Wednesday, June 15. Attendees learned how flooding affects the KK River neighborhood and how to prepare for a flood. Participants also learned how free rain barrels can help to reduce runoff AND store water for gardens.
You too can learn about the impact of environmental health on Milwaukee neighborhoods, and join in hands-on activities, including fishing, biking and outdoor science! Just stop by one of Sixteenth Street’s upcoming workshops at Pulaski Park, 2701 S 16th Street from 5:30-7:30 p.m.:
- July 6: Water pollution and your health
- July 13: Biking and hiking along the new KK River
- August 3: Fishing for dinner
- August 17: Canoe trip on the KK River
We hope to see you there!
