Community Rivers Program (CRP)
Coming Together For Clean Water
We all benefit from having clean and healthy rivers. That's why we're coming together as a community to plan, design, and build projects that will keep our stretch of the Milwaukee River beautiful and livable for generations to come. For more info and upcoming events, visit us at:

Have you ever wanted to reduce your kitchen and yard waste? Come join the Community Rivers Program to learn all the basics in composting!

Pre-registration (here) is recommended.
> Family Fishing - Free Event for Village of Saukville Residents
July 30th - 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. at East Riverside Park, Saukville
Spend the afternoon on the banks of the Milwaukee River at East Riverside Park with a pole in your hand and hopefully a few bites on your line! Learn how to tie a hook on your line, bait your hook, and safely cast your line into the water. With the assistance of a Riveredge Naturalist, we will try to catch and identify each fish before releasing them back into the river. A limited number of poles and bait are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, or you can bring your own. Children ages 8 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is not required.
