Share the Plate
For the month of April, UCN shares the plate with Milwaukee Riverkeeper. Milwaukee Riverkeeper is dedicated to protecting water quality and the wildlife habitat in the river corridors. Milwaukee Riverkeeper also advocates for responsible land use in the Milwaukee, Menomonee and Kinnickinnic River Watersheds.
To achieve these ends, Milwaukee Riverkeeper operates numerous programs to ensure that those living in the Milwaukee River basin will have access to clean drinking water and swimmable, fishable rivers. Programs include monitoring the rivers for water quality, cleaning the river shores, surveying the shores for signs of erosion or other treats to water quality and wildlife habitats, educating the public about issues facing our rivers, advocating for policy that protects the rivers, and organizing canoe and kayak events along the area rivers.
