Busy Memorial Day weekend at state parks

Newport State Park is ready for all the visitors sure to come this Memorial Day weekend. It’s one of the busiest weekends of the year for Wisconsin State Parks with the weather finally starting to warm up. Newport State Park Manager Michelle Hefty says that there is so much to do at Newport that the trails and beaches shouldn’t be too crowded. The park is also hosting a presentation called “Birds and Wildflowers of Door County” on Sunday. Hefty shared what you might see if you participate.



“Birds and Wildflowers of Door County” is free. A Wisconsin State Park sticker is required. The event starts at 1:30 PM.

Would you rather see the legislature increase the gas tax and receive funding from out-of-state visitors or increase the registration fee and only get more money from Wisconsin residents?
