The Water Expo was a day of learning and fun

There was so much to do today that it’s hard to summarize it! Grandmother Josephine Mandamin and William Waterway Marks spoke to us about their paths and journeys that brought them to a life of water advocacy. Michael Mucha from the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) talked again about the importance of what happens to water after it goes down the drain in our house. MMSD processes 44 million gallons of waste water a day. That’s enough to fill Camp Randall!

The expo tent was bustling with all the exhibitors. I couldn’t stay away from the USGS Stream Table.

At the gazebo Karen Wendt, Gerri Gurman, Ken Lonnquist, Mark Croft, and Skip Jones entertained young and old alike.

While the sky didn’t give up any rain, it did cool down considerably for the showing of Waterlife. It was, dare I say, nice outside!

Thank you all for coming out and participating with us!

We’d also like to say a special thank you to Bloom Bake Shop, Stalzy’s Delicatessen, Salad Creations Monona, Willy Street Co-op, and Weary Traveler Free House for providing food and refreshments to our special guests and staff. Lastly a very big thank you to Heidi Uhrig from Glass Slipper Homes for a masterful dinner with fish donated by the Seafood Center.
