Lands’ End officially kicked off its Heritage Collection product launch and Heritage Tour with a celebratory event at Milwaukee’s North Point Lighthouse. The event, in partnership with North Point Lighthouse and the United States Lighthouse Society, celebrated Lands’ End’s ongoing commitment to lighthouse preservation by supporting the restoration of the North Point Lighthouse South Ravine Trail in Lake Park. This project will restore and connect the upper South Ravine Trail to the Stormwater Regenerative Conveyance System in the lower ravine, which is designed to capture storm water pollution runoff in the ravine before it reaches Bradford Beach and Lake Michigan.
Lands’ End donated $20,000 to help fund the South Ravine Trail restoration and other lighthouse initiatives. Dignitaries from Lands’ End, the United States Lighthouse Society and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett spoke during the event.
The Weather Channel broadcast two early morning segments on August 22, 2018, from the top of the lighthouse tower. This partnership marks the fourth Lands’ End lighthouse restoration project since 2014 as part of its Lighthouse Initiative. View more videos, view our YouTube channel.
