Great News for South Shore Beach!
Miller-Coors donates $500,000 to improve water quality at our beach. These private funds will help Milwaukee County Parks leverage public funds to clean up the beach over the next five years. Check out news coverage from WUWM. South Shore Park Watch’s Katie Williams is quoted. For more news coverage, see this link.
UW-Milwaukee School of Freshwater Science’s Dr. Sandra McLellan spoke about how her research over the last 10 years has identified pollution sources at the beach and what issues to tackle first. Bird droppings and parking lot run-off are the two main culprits the County Parks will address.
Join us for one final beach clean up of the year on Bay View Beach This beach is one of the hidden gems on Milwaukee’s South Side. Bags and gloves will be provide as well as some tools such as racks, grabbers, etc. Please bring your own if possible.
