August 20, 2017, Sunday - Watershed by Bike II

Time:  10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Location: Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, 2522 Marshall Street Northeast

Watershed by Bike II

Join Saint Paul songwriter, poet and cycling advocate Ben Weaver for a short (less than 6 mile) bike ride from the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) through the Holland neighborhood and back to the Mississippi River and MWMO. The group will make several stops enroute to experience this watershed area and discuss questions such as: What is a watershed? How big is your watershed? Learn how we can nurture a healthy relationship with the great Mississippi River through the daily choices we make that impact the watersheds in which we live.

Along the ride we’ll notice the path water takes through the neighborhood to the river and make a brief stop for a snack break. There will be time at the beginning and end of the ride to explore the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) campus where you’ll see raingardens and many other features designed to collect rain runoff, minimizing its ability to carry pollution to the river. Expect to hear a little music and poetry as well. All ages and abilities are encouraged to join for this event.

On the day of the ride we will meet at the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO). MWMO has a parking lot should you choose to drive.

THIS EVENT WILL BE RAIN OR SHINE. If there is lightning or severe weather the event will move indoors for a mini concert and waterehd interpreptive activity onsite in the MWMO building.

This ride will be led by Ben Weaver and is sponsored by the Holland Neighborhood Improvement Association with a grant from the Miississippi Watershed Management Organization. If you have specific needs or questions feel free to reach out Adelheid Koski at the Holland Neighborhood Improvemnt Association:
