Earth Day March and Celebration

We will celebrate Earth Day and affirm our Support for Science on Saturday, April 22 with a march. We will start at 11 AM where the north entrance to the River Edge Walkway begins at the Wisconsin River end of Winton Street. Bring your signs and banners. Our walk ends at the Oak Island Park shelter just north of Thomas Street at 12 o’clock. We will plant an oak tree nearby. Folks who want a shorter walk can join anywhere along the way or just meet at the park.

Mayor Robert Mielke will officiate and dedicate the tree. Retired UWMC Professor of Biology Dr. Ned Grossnickle will speak about climate change, its impacts and what we can do to alleviate it.

The walk and celebration is free and open to all people with all levels of ability, children are welcome. No registration is required.

This event is sponsored by the Marathon County chapter of the Citizen’s Climate Lobby and the American Association of University Women. Since the Earth is our home and its care is our shared responsibility we welcome people of all faiths, all cultures and every political preference.
