Friends groups excited for parks' reopening

Groups like the Friends of Peninsula State Park are happy to see people being able to hike, bike and camp in Wisconsin’s state parks again. Although Door County’s state parks remained open during Governor Tony Evers’ Safer at Home Order, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reopened them to camping just last week. Health concerns prevented Friends groups from doing their usual clean-up days in the spring to help the parks get ready for an influx of visitors. Volunteer Steve Strucely says park staff did a great job keeping up with the projects they usually help support.

To make up for time lost, Strucely says the organization will likely hold a fall clean-up day to take care of some of the extra work Mother Nature provided over the winter and spring months.
