Wednesday Water Walk : September 11 at Noon

September 3, 2013Joanne RichardsonEvents, Former Featured PostsComments Off on Wednesday Water Walk : September 11 at Noon


Explore the connections between campus and the Mississippi and learn about important aspects of the river corridor and the water system that supports it (and us!) on the second Wednesday of each month at noon, place TBA. Students, staff, faculty, and friends all welcome!

September 11 at Noon – Mississippi River 101

Meet us on East River Parkway at Harvard Street (by the hospital complex).  We’ll walk down the stairs to the East River Flats and explore “Mississippi River 101.”  Where does the river come from, and where does it go?  Can you drink it here, swim in it?  What kinds of fish live in the river?  Who owns it?

Come with questions!

For more information and to rsvp if you’d like, send a message to the River Life Program

This Wednesday Water Walk is co-sponsored with the student River Ranger program.
