This is a family event open to the whole community--everyone is welcome! 

All participants in the Walk for Water will depart at 12 noon from the parking lot of the Boys and Girls Club of London (184 Horton St. ) and follow the walk circuit below: We will walk south on Richmond Street to the bike path at the bridge. We will follow the bike path easterly along the north bank of the Thames River through Richard Harrison Park. We follow the bike path under the Wellington Street Bridge that comes up onto the east side of Wellington Road. We cross the bridge and enter Watson Street Park. We follow the path way through Watson Street Park to Adelaide Street We turn back and follow the path back to Watson Street Park and join in the Earth Day festivities, including marching the giant 30 foot Benevolent Blue Water Snake around the park. 

This Walk for Water will be accompanied by Upper Thames River Conservation Authority Biologist Cathy Quinlan who will be pointing out various items of interest along the Thames River.
