Water defines Milwaukee, whether it’s vast Lake Michigan to your east, the rivers and tributaries that feed it, landscaping features designed to absorb rain and runoff, or the underground pipes and chambers that manage storm and waste water. Fund for Lake Michigan invites you to use your Doors Open Milwaukee Passport to explore the relationship between Milwaukee’s water and the city’s industrial, commercial, civic, and residential development. See and experience how Milwaukee responds to, accommodates, depends on, and features its liquid abundance.
The Doors Open Water Passport was made possible with support from the Fund for Lake Michigan. The UWM School of Freshwater Sciences and Harbor District, Inc. created the Water Passport in 2016.
How to Participate
Water passports will be available at the event headquarters (235 E Michigan St) or at any of the water passport sites. Participants who get their passport stamped at one or more sites should drop it off to the event headquarters (235 E Michigan St) for their chance to win a John Gurda book Milwaukee: A City Built on Water.
