Summer & Service Activities in Lincoln Park
WEED OUT - Saturday June 16th
9:00 am to 12:00 noon
Garlic mustard is an invasive plant that crowds out native wildflowers and hampers woodland diversity. We need your help to remove it and make the park more beautiful to enjoy.
Meet in the Parking Lot at Emil Blatz Pavilion, 1301 W Hampton Ave. If you arrive late, look for a note on our whereabouts
Please wear long pants and walking shoes. We will be in woodland areas.
This is a great activity for civic clubs or an easy way to fulfill volunteer hours for school. If you are unable to make it on these days and would like to participate on a different day text Anne Vaillancourt at: 414-399-8272 or www.Facebook.com/LincolnParkFriends
Blaze New Trail - the Lincoln, Estabrook Connector Trail
Tuesdays, June 17th, 24th and 31st , 2-5pm (every Tuesday until completed)
This is an historic endeavor you'll want to be part of. This will be an important addition to the Milwaukee River Greenway. But we are close to completion and are only scheduling three weeks out. This is a joint project of Friends of Lincoln Park, Friends of Estabrook Park and Milwaukee County Parks. The new trail will traverse under three bridges to connect two county parks and create a continuous river-side trail from Capitol Drive to Silver Spring Dr.
Work to Continue until trail is completed.
Park in the Lincoln Park Golf Course parking lot, 1000 W Hampton Ave. This is a work outing so dress appropriately. Gloves and tools will be provided. Experienced trail builders will instruct participants in trail-building technique. We'll use shovels, loppers, pulaskis and mcclouds. These are trail building tools for digging and leveling the pathway. Moderate physical fitness is required for this outing. In the event of heavy rain, we will postpone work until the following Tuesday. Check our Facebook page for work progress updates and Grand Opening Celebration
