Menomonee Valley Stew Crews: Keeping the Valley clean and green!

Since 2008, the Menomonee River Valley Stewardship Crew, “Stew Crews,” have worked to keep the Valley healthy and beautiful.  Organized by Menomonee Valley Partners and the Friends of Hank Aaron State Trail, Crews are dedicated volunteers from businesses, neighborhoods, and schools in and around the Menomonee River Valley. They have contributed thousands of volunteer hours to clean up litter and maintain native vegetation along the Hank Aaron State Trail and throughout the Valley. The Valley would not be what it is today without the effort of these volunteers.

Stew Crews are assigned their own section of the trail and a designated captain recruits a group of volunteers for each scheduled outing. The Crews spend up to two hours per month from April to October carrying out stewardship activities in the Valley. Activities include litter removal, trail maintenance, invasive species removal, and river clean up.
