Planning the "Long Walk for Birds 2014" - the RELAY

Last year's "Long Walk for Birds" across WI was successful at raising $10, 504 in pledges for the Bird Protection Fund of the Natural Resources Foundation. A new idea has surfaced for 2014 - a relay. I'm looking for people who are interested in walking part of a distance (the route is yet to be chosen: for example, one possible route is from IL/WI state line in Kenosha Co to Green Bay, mostly following the lakeshore). I am willing to cover the first 4 days this time, but would like to find people who can walk any distance (an hour, a morning, a whole day) to string together the remaining route. If this sounds interesting to you and you would be willing to commit part of a day, please contact me to discuss it. The time frame would be approximately the first 2 weeks in May 2014.

  1. Wow! Great idea Bill -- count me in. Let me know if you need any help with planning and logistics.

  2. I will walk some along the lake during one day's time if it is in Ozaukee - know it isn't much, but i could do it.
