Over the last year, The United Community Center’s Acosta Middle School (UCC AMS) has partnered with the WaterMarks initiative in order to educate the community about Milwaukee’s water systems. WaterMarks has developed a series of neighborhood walks (starting from UCC’s campus) to engage citizens with artists and scientists about water issues, infrastructure, and conservation. The next walk will take place on Sunday, April 22, which is Earth Day.
The project is coordinated by Marquette University’s Haggerty Museum of Art and in collaboration with the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, the University of Wisconsin-
Milwaukee (UWM) School of Freshwater Sciences, the Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers, and UCC’s Acosta Middle School (UCC AMS)
