Slugs to Sludge Wastewater 5K – May 23rd sponsored by UCSC Art Department, OpenLab & Porter College

The Slugs to Sludge Wastewater 5K is a walk which follows the path of wastewater from the UC-Santa Cruz campus to the Wastewater Treatment Plant at Neary Lagoon. Along the way, participants will learn about the poetics and politics of human waste, and the water required to process it, as they travel through several different hybrid landscapes of wilderness and human infrastructure. The event aims to bring awareness to typically invisible material flows and promote water conservation in a creative, playful way that ties education to lived experience in the physical landscape of Santa Cruz.
All proceeds from the event will benefit Take Back The Tap.
