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!). Students, staff, faculty, and friends all welcome!

Water Walk, May 6 at Noon – A Participatory Walk With the Mississippi River

Join artist Emily Johnson on a participatory walk with the Mississippi River. Emily creates work that engages us within and through environments – connecting to and interacting with place via imagination, memory, sights, sounds, smells…

Emily has planned a walk with the Mississippi River that includes the movement of our walking and the flow of the river. There will be story and silence. We will get off the sidewalk. We will imagine our connection to the entire length of the Mississippi by paying close attention to the amount of water we can hold in our hands.

The walk begins on the steps of Northrop and ends at East River Flats Park though an optional volunteer return-trip trash-pick-up walk is also planned.

Meet us on the steps in front of Northrop at noon, on the East Bank of the UMN campus.

Come with questions!

For more information and to RSVP if you’d like, send a message to the River Life Program rlp@umn.edu. Students, staff, faculty, and friends all welcome!
