Peninsula State Park group wins partnership award

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources recognized the efforts of the Friends of Peninsula State Park on Monday with its annual partnership award. The group saw two of his major projects take major strides in 2020 thanks to over $1 million in fundraising. Over $360,000 was raised to build an addition to the nature center and another $750,000 was collected to construct a new Eagle Tower. Steve Strucely from the Friends of Peninsula State Park says the award is tremendous recognition for what they have been working so hard on over the last few years.

Both projects will still see some work done before they open for visitors. The Friends of Peninsula State Park is raising money to build an amphitheater and improve walkways near the nature center. Handrails and some other safety features still need to be installed at the new Eagle Tower, which is set to welcome visitors in the spring.
