Please join First Lady Tonette Walker on Wednesday, September 12, 2018, as she walks St. Feriole Island Park in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.
Participants will gather and park at St. Feriole Island Park located at 900 W. Blackhawk Avenue in Prairie du Chien. Please meet by 9:45 AM. The guided walk will span approximately one and a half miles, beginning and ending at the athletic fields.
St. Feriole Island is the site of some Prairie du Chien's earliest settlements, including Fort Crawford. The city of Prairie du Chien thrived on the island until record flooding forced relocation to the mainland in 1965. The island is now home to public athletic fields, parks, and several historic structures.
Please be advised to wear or bring with you the following: good walking shoes, umbrellas, sunscreen, bug repellent, hat, layers or a jacket, camera, and water.
