Nature Center receives warm welcome

Your trip to Peninsula State Park can include another attraction hidden in the spotlight of the reopened Eagle Tower. State precautions allowed the White Cedar Nature Center to reopen to the public earlier this month. The Friends of Peninsula State Park completed work on it last year, but the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources kept the nature center and similar buildings across the state park system shuttered due to COVID-19 concerns. Improvements began in October 2019 and included additional space, new windows, siding, and new restrooms. Steve Strucely from the Friends of Peninsula State Park says the $300,000 investment from the group has been well worth it based on the feedback they have received.

Just because you can head inside the building now does not mean the work is done at the White Cedar Nature Center. Strucely says the Friends group hopes to start work on an improved outdoor amphitheater in October and have it finished ahead of the snowfall.
