Portland's Walk for Water
Returning for a fourth year, Portland’s favorite World Water Day Celebration is the 2012 Walk for Water, where participants check in at OMSI and collect their water-gathering containers to begin a walk around the Willamette River. Simulating a typical water-gathering experience for women and children in sub-Saharan Africa, walkers will haul water throughout their 3.1mile route. The Walk for Water Celebration continues post-walk back at OMSI where booths showcase community organizations involved with water and related environmental issues, here and abroad.
Portland's Walk for Water is March 24th at OMSI.
