[wisb] Gathering Waters Festival is June 11 at Lakeshore State Park


Gathering Waters Festival (with a birding component)
Saturday, June 11, 2011 - 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Lakeshore State Park, Milwaukee – off the coast of Summerfest

An urban outdoor experience on a peninsula park in Lake Michigan. This is a 
free event with the best in local food, music, beer and over 100 exhibitors 
on outdoor activities, fishing, birding, boating, canoeing, kayaking, 
rockwall climbing, wellness, natural landscaping and Milwaukee's waters. 
Activities and demos for all ages. The Park has a sandy small boat beach, 
boat docks, fishing piers, prairies, rain gardens and trails that link to 
the Hank Aaron State Trail and Oakleaf Trails.

The Gathering Waters Festival is part of Lakeshore State Park's signature 
educational programs - the Great Lakes and Freshwater Ecology Series. This 
event educates the public on freshwater issues and recreational 
opportunities. We're also celebrating National Get Outdoors Day - 1 of 100 
events nationwide to get kids outdoors. This festival is promoted as a 
mainstream summer kick-off on Milwaukee's lakefront with the best in local 
food, music and beverages. It is not promoted as an environmental event, so 
we're able to reach a broader audience that needs to understand more about 
these issues. There will be over 120 exhibits and demonstration and an 
expected audience about 10,000.
