Beach Day at Atwater Beach
June 23, 2019 @ 1:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+0
This Sunday we will be spending the afternoon relaxing at Atwater Beach! Atwater is a small beach on Lake Michigan, North of Bradford. Optional activities will include swimming (depending on weather and water quality), frisbee, beach games, and enjoying the Atwater Beach playground. Feel free to bring your favorite games, activities, or foods to share with the group!
Time: 1:00-4:00 PM.
Location: Atwater Beach (N Lake Dr, Shorewood, WI 53211). I will arrive 15 mins early to meet with anyone who arrives before 1:00. We will gather on the beach below Atwater Park. There is a ramp and stairs for access to the beach. There are usually gendered restrooms and port-a-potties at the top of the ramp (but port-a-potties can be gender inclusive!) If you arrive and have difficulty finding the meeting location, please contact me at 414-249-6746.
Transportation: If you are taking the bus, Atwater Beach is accessible from the Red Line, which stops at Downer & Capitol #2374 (two blocks from the beach). Contact me for additional transportation questions/concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to bring: Yourself, a water bottle, sunscreen, weather-appropriate clothing (you may want to bring layers and a sun hat), a towel to sit on (and an extra if you plan to swim), bathing suit or swim clothes (optional), snacks (optional). I will bring a few snacks for us to share, so feel free to bring food to share with everyone if you feel inclined! I also recognize that swimming and beach attire can sometimes be stressful for trans/non-binary folks, so please choose to do and wear whatever feels the most comfortable and affirming for you.
Weather: 71° and partly cloudy with a chance of rain in the morning. If it rains, we will arrange an alternate indoors meeting location.
What’s next?: Mark your calendars! The next FORGE Outdoors outing will be on Sunday, June 30th. This week we will be biking along the Beerline Trail from 1:00-4:00 PM. Keep an eye out for details and for future events! This summer we will be hiking, biking, rock climbing, and enjoying beach and picnic days around Milwaukee.
