Don't forget Your Journey Guide 
Available on our website or by attending a Journey event

The Commons Journey project was inspired by the motion of water and so we found projects that were in motion (walkers, cyclists, paddlers, runners, swimmers). The list of Journey partnerships is being updated every month and we are now happy to share our Journey Guide to the wider GLC community.

Additional Summer Events
Saturday, August 6th - Children of the Wild will perform The Wastelands as part of the Detroit Sidewalk Festival.

Sunday, August 7th - Milwaukee Water Commons will host We Are Water - A community beachfront celebration of Milwaukee's waters.

Saturday, August 20th - eXXpedition Great Lakes is happening all around the Great Lakes, on every lake!
