Water Warriors host Water Walk on June 6

SAVE THE DATE! Water Warriors United is hosting a community Water Walk on June 6th starting at West Park on the north end of Lake Ave in downtown White Bear Lake. There will be local vendors, educational booths, and more.  The 1-mile Water Walk and event is free, however there will be an opportunity to make a donation to fund a future water project.  Participants will have an opportunity to carry water and experience what many communities across the world do just to get clean water for their homes. All ages are welcome!

Water Warriors United is a group of high school and middle school students who share the mission:  To create a culture of water conservation and to inspire our community to take actions to solve the global water crisis. And thanks to a generous MDE Race2Reduce Grant, the Water Warriors are able to host events like the Water Walk.

The group has also started a podcast and recently published their first episode.  DOWNLOAD or STREAM today! For up to date details, follow on Instagram @waterwarriorsunited and/or Facebook @waterwarriorsunited1.
