Please wear shoes that can get wet or wading boots, if they have them Bring gloves and a trash grabber if they have them (we will have some, but it helps when others bring their own) Wear long pants to tuck into shoes – not a big risk of deer ticks in early September, but just a precaution.
LISTEN TO our volunteer PENNY Fuller who was featured on MPR on Art Hounds today! Nurse and concerned environmentalist Penny Fuller is looking forward to “This is Ours: Our Park, Our Lake, Our Trash,” a one-day exhibition and art installation on the southern shore of Lake Hiawatha. A group of artists will be creating pieces that invite viewers to both celebrate the natural beauty of the lake and raise awareness of the pollution that threatens its biodiversity.
The show runs Saturday, Sept. 8 from sunrise to sunset and includes hands-on activities for visitors.
