On the Edge of West Allis

Saturday, September 16th, 2017, 10 AM - 11:30 AM

The Hank Aaron State Trail goes across the entirety of Milwaukee County. This walk focuses on our lesser known west end along the border of West Allis. We’ll talk about the thousands of plantings that have taken this from an industrial rail site to a beautiful section of the Trail and we’ll also cover a bit about the history of West Allis, once known as "the industry capital of Wisconsin."

Melissa Cook, Hank Aaron State Trail Manager, will guide the tour. $2 Class fee is non-refundable. Register here. Please meet at the picnic table near 61st and Dickenson St. (Off on Hawley Road, turn west on to Main St., then south on to 60th.)
