Happy Earth Day!

Over 400 4th graders visited South Shore Park to learn about the environment and the creatures that share our world. Big thanks to Bea Reinders, one of our dedicated volunteers, that makes this event happen!

Our next South Shore Park (Watch) meeting will take place on Tuesday, February 10th at 7 pm. Due to a scheduling conflict, we will not hold the meeting on the usual Thursday night.

South Shore Park 2900 S Shore Dr, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53207

On the agenda so far is the name change decision. At our October meeting, the group voted to change the name of South Shore Park Watch to better reflect the comprehensive mission of our organization. Suggestions for a new name included:
Friends of South Shore Park
South Shore Park Friends

If you have another suggestion for the new name, please email back your idea or share that idea at the Feb. 10th meeting. We will vote on the new name at that meeting.

The executive committee (Chad, Cary, Katie W., Jane) need your ideas for the upcoming year’s agenda. Please email any ideas you have for monthly meeting programming, events, or issues that the group should be addressing over 2015. We will also brainstorm ideas during the Feb. 10th meeting.

Thanks to all the fab volunteers that worked on our native plant garden on Nov. 8. We cut back trees shading out native plants, pulled out garlic mustard, and made room for the nativeĀ lead plant, which should be a pretty purple come spring. And a special shout out to Brian Russart of Milwaukee County Parks who led us in our quest to provide habitat for migratory birds and increase biodiversity at South Shore.
