For some reason, this walker won't work when I pass in 'echo ' => 0, it always prints the nav, and never returns the nav as a var. I can't seem to figure out where it's by passing that in wordpress. Any chance anyone can spot the problem?

function bones_main_nav() {
    $menu_args = array(
        'menu' => 'main_nav', /* menu name */
        'menu_class' => 'nav',
        'echo ' => 0,
        'theme_location' => 'main_nav', /* where in the theme it's assigned */
        'container' => 'false', /* container class */
        //'fallback_cb' => 'bones_main_nav_fallback', /* menu fallback */
        'depth' => '2', /* suppress lower levels for now */
        'walker' => new description_walker()
    );

    echo wp_nav_menu($menu_args);
    /*
    if(function_exists('new_beginnings')) {
        $topNav = wp_get_cache('topNav');
        if ($topNav === false) {
            $topNav = wp_nav_menu($menu_args);
            print_r($topNav);
            wp_set_cache('topNav', $topNav, 4000);
        }
        echo $topNav;
    } else {
        echo wp_nav_menu($menu_args);
    }
    */
}






// this is the fallback for header menu
function bones_main_nav_fallback() {
    // not calling this in case of multiple level pages - hope to add dropdown menu as an enhancement
    //wp_page_menu( 'show_home=Home&menu_class=menu' );
}

// this is the fallback for footer menu
function bones_footer_links_fallback() {
    /* you can put a default here if you like */
}

// Menu output mods
class description_walker extends Walker_Nav_Menu {
      function start_el(&$output, $item, $depth, $args) {
