First Day Hike at Peninsula State Park canceled

People looking to start the New Year with the Friends of Peninsula State Park's First Day Hike will have to kick off 2019 another way.  The group's board of directors decided not to hold the First Day Hike because of staffing issues.  Board member David Lea says an inadequate number park employees created some problems with last year's hike.



Lea also says there were not enough volunteers available to help out.  So this year's tradition had to give way to safety concerns.
