Earth Day 5K Walk presented by OmniSource
Join us as we celebrate the important conservation efforts of Little River Wetlands Project (LRWP) and Eagle Marsh while raising funds for this important cause. The Earth Day 5K Walk presented by OmniSource will begin at 2:00 pm on Sunday, April 21 and is part of the Earth Day Fort Wayne festival from 1-5:00 pm.
Online registration will remain open through Saturday, April 20. Walkers may also register on event day (Sunday, April 21) at the check-in table from 1:00 - 2:00pm. All walkers will gather at 2:00pm and head out together on the trails to show their support for local conservation.
Walk T-shirt and goodie bags are available to all who pre-register by Monday, April 8 and then on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. Registration for this fundraiser is just $20 for adults, $10 for youth ages 7-17, and kids up to age 6 are free (but will not receive a T-shirt or goodie bag). Pre-registration is now open and you can register either online or by mailing a registration form to our office.
You can also help us raise even more funds to support our conservation work by creating your own personalized fundraising page! It’s easy through our online site--just create your own fundraising page, to which your friends and family can contribute simply and securely. Even better, we're offering the following prizes for walkers who raise $100 (LRWP golf umbrella), $250 (LRWP canvas messenger bag), or $500 (Lands' End item of your choice - max $50 value - with LRWP logo).
