Join us for an informational walk and picnic

Protecting the Waters and Penokee Hills

Please join us for a walk on Saturday May 21st at 10:00 a.m.

We will be walking along the proposed open pit iron ore mine site to call to attention all that will be changed forever.

We walk to defend water, land, and the beings directly affected by the mine.

We invite you to meet at Ballou Creek just a half mile off of Highway 77 to begin our journey. Our walk will end at Tyler Forks River.  The length is approximately 5 1/2 miles.  Walk what you are able.

A picnic and talking circles will follow at Upson Park around 2:00 p.m.

Personal Tours will be accessible to those interested in seeing the site.

Please bring drinking water and appropriate gear for the walk. Pack a picnic lunch and feel free to join the talking circles and share your thoughts.
