Victory over TrashThe snow will be gone, we hope! And when the snow melts, trash emerges and we count on you to help us for the Milwaukee RIverkeeper annual Spring River Cleanup. You can join us on water or land. Water is a vital part of Lincoln Park and our lives. Riverkeeper has designated Lincoln Park as a "Class 3" location meaning we have lots of trash and need lots of help!  Meet at the Blatz Pavilion.  Register NOW to reserve your free t-shirt.   You can register to clean-up on Land or on the Water:
  1. Register on Land
  2. Register for on-the-Water (Bring our own Boat)

Spring Weedouts, May 18th and 25th

The Weed Out CrewWe love Garlic Mustard.  We love to yank this invasive weed out by its roots and watch the native wildflowers return.  Help us control invasive plants in the park and protect the wild Wisconsin native habitat. This is a great service project for your school, business or civic group.  Groups should contact Anne Stadler Vaillancourt at anne.stadler.v@gmail.com
Our two scheduled Spring Weed-Out dates are Saturday May 18th and May 25th 9am to 12pm.  Mark these dates in your calendar! Meet at the Blatz Pavilion.
