Saturday, November 22, 2014 A national model in economic and environmental sustainability

Getting Involved


Are you interested in supporting your community right in your back yard?  If so, the Menomonee Valley is the place for you to be. 

 

Form a "Stew Crew" and Adopt-a-Trail

Join many other Valley businesses and nearby community groups by helping to keep the Menomonee River Valley and Hank Aaron State Trail clean and beautiful.  “Stew Crews” are a great way for interested organizations, businesses and neighborhood groups to spend time outdoors, build team spirit, and care for their “own” section of the trail.  Caring for the trail includes litter patrol, removal of non-native plant species and planting native species.  For more information, please contact Catrina Crane at (414) 274-4657 or catrina@renewthevalley.org

 
Volunteer for a Day:

Menomonee Valley Partners hosts numerous volunteer events throughout the year including Earth Day Clean-up, Community Planting Day, and Seeds for the Future planting days with neighborhood schools.  We also recruit volunteers for the annual Hank Aaron State Trail 5K Run/Walk event, Bike to Work Week, and other events throughout the year.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Catrina Crane at (414) 274-4657 or catrina@renewthevalley.org.


Network with Valley Businesses: 

Join the Menomonee Valley Business Association and have the opportunity mvbato network with other Valley businesses.  Meetings are held each month at different Valley locations, and provide updates on what's happening in the Valley, as well as information from elected officials about policies and programs of interest to Valley business owners and employees.
