Sustain Winona and the Izaak Walton League of America have partnered together to put on the very first Winona Water Day, Saturday, Sept. 22, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. All are invited to this free event where participants can learn all about the ways we are connected to water and the variety of ways to help protect it.

Transportation will be provided. Vans will circle between Levee Park, Saint Mary’s University, and Gilmore Creek. Attendees can learn about water quality and Winona’s conservation history during short educational presentations at Saint Mary’s University. Join in the fun at Gilmore Creek by jumping in or spending time with the Izaak Walton League for stream monitoring demonstrations. Levee Park will feature a variety of organizations including Whitewater State Park and their LEGO watershed model, Winona County Soil and Water Conservation District, Healthy Lake Winona, Izaak Walton League – Upper Mississippi River Initiative, the City of Winona, National Trout Center, Water Bar & Public Studio, and much, much more!
