Newport State Park in Ellison Bay is known more for its remote camping, but it still needs some additional tender loving care before the summer. The Newport Wilderness Society is offering lunch in exchange for some helpful hands to clean up trails and campsites as a part of the state park system's Earth Day Work Day campaign. Volunteer coordinator Karen Studebaker says as the state’s only wilderness park, Newport is a special place.
The Earth Day Work Day at Newport State Park runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. beginning at its maintenance shop. There is no cost to participate, even for those without a state park sticker.
