How SideWAUK Sessions Works:
Meet at a place that serves coffee, tea etc.
Embark on an journey to discover Milwaukee neighborhoods and meet new people.
At certain times throughout our 30ish minute, 4,000 step, 2ish mile hike you be prompted with questions that spark conversation.
After each question you will be asked to pair up with another person.
During SideWauk session, we will have secret pop up talk from a creative, creator, entrepreneur, community organizer or business leader to talk about what they are working on.
Upon returning everyone that came on the hike will have time to connect with everyone at the starting location.
More about the Menomonee River Valley:
This year marks a milestone of 20 years of redevelopment and revitalization in Milwaukee’s Menomonee River Valley. This SideWAUKee invites you to explore this award-winning area of Milwaukee that has been transformed from Wisconsin’s most visible eyesore to the thriving eco-focused business and recreational destination it is today. When Milwaukee was the "Machine Shop of the World," the Valley was its engine with heavy industry that left its mark on the land. Through community efforts, this area has become home to good jobs and careers, public art that honors history and culture, and trails and parks that welcome 100,000 visitors each year while improving the area's biodiversity also protecting water quality in Lake Michigan. We're certain this SideWAUKee will leave an impression and change how you experience the Valley!
