Help Build a River of Hope in Madison!

Summer is here! Looking for something to do with the family, but still socially distancing? Madison Visionary Partners and The City of Madison invites you to help create the “River of Hope,” a painted rock garden along the new section of Bradford Creek Trail in Madison! This is a great family or small group activity to do this summer while staying socially distant.

If your family would like to paint a rock or two to add to the dry river rock bed, you can do so before July 14th. Here’s how…
