Eagle Tower Project At Peninsula State Park Still Overbudget After Second Round of Bids

The Eagle is still grounded after a second round of bids to erect a new Eagle Tower at Peninsula State Park. The project remains a little over a million dollars over the budget set out by the Department of Natural Resources. Since 2016, the Friends of Peninsula State Park have raised $750,000 to help bridge the gap. The contributions have come from over 1,300 individuals, showing great community support for the project. Steve Strucely from the Friends says the group does not plan to raise any more money but says the DNR is working hard to make the Tower a reality:


Wisconsin DNR is still hopeful the funds can be found in time for a fall groundbreaking.
