Parkway Receives Grant from River Alliance of Wisconsin
Posted by shari on October 14th, 2013
The Parkway has received a generous grant awarded by River Alliance of Wisconsin to fund research centered on improving access to, and appropriate use of the river by the Fox Cities’ extensive Hmong population. The Hmong population come from a river-oriented culture.
The Parkway wants to learn if there are barriers to Hmong access to the Fox River that could potentially be remedied. This grant will look at this issue by working with U.W. Oshkosh Professor Paul Van Auken to interview and analyze responses to a targeted survey, as well as other methods. It is important to have all who live by the rivers feel comfortable using them.
