President of Friends of Peninsula State Park given HERO award

This fall, the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks recognized Chris Holicek for her work as Friends of Peninsula State Park president. HERO awards are given to Friends groups or individuals who have spent considerable time and energy taking care of a state park, trail, or forest. This year, Holicek was one of two people from Wisconsin that were given this award. Holicek has been the president of the Friends board since 2009. Since then, she has had a hand in many projects that have taken place within the state park. When speaking with her, she expressed her love for the park, the inspiration behind her work, and how it feels to receive this award.



You can enjoy the work that has been done in the park, like the refurbished Eagle Tower, the nature center amphitheater, and the picnic benches that have been added to the park. The Friends of Peninsula State Park will continue to enhance the experience of everyone who comes to enjoy the park, which includes a new fundraising campaign starting in December to add a fully accessible playground at Nicolet Beach to replace the equipment that was removed.
