Volunteer Work Day at Peninsula - This Saturday (4/29)!

Walk the talk this Saturday, April 29, by lending a hand at Peninsula State Park. Choose your "good earth action" by either helping pull garlic mustard below Sven's Bluff from 10 - 11 a.m. or by helping at the Nature Center from 12 Noon to 3 p.m. Stay twenty minutes or longer! Jobs for all ages and abilities: raking, wood chipping, dusting, waxing trail signs, sorting craft supplies, sweeping, litter pick up. Make your own pudgy pie pizza over a campfire for helping, with food fixins supplied by Friends of Peninsula State Park.

This program is free and open to the public. Volunteer vehicle sticker courtesy passes provided for those who help, valid only at the locations listed above while volunteering. Stop at Park Headquarters if your family needs a volunteer courtesy pass to participate. Nature Center clean up takes place rain or shine. The garlic mustard mustard pull at Sven's will be cancelled if it is raining, due to slippery conditions.

For complete information call the Nature Center at 920-854-5976 or email kathleen.harris@wisconsin.gov.

Date Night with Peninsula Timberdoodles

Love is in the air – literally. Male timberdoodles, a brown, chicken size game bird, entice mates with a spectacular, circular sky dance at dusk. Join the Peninsula State Park naturalist on Friday, April 21, or Friday, April 28 at from 8 to 9 p.m. at the Nature Center. After seeking a taxidermy timberdoodle up close, we’ll car pool to “peenting” grounds on Middle Road watch for these sky dancers. In past years the birds have also been heard singing near the Nature Center. If there are rains or high winds, the program is cancelled.

Both programs are free and open to the public but a state park vehicle sticker is required. If you need additional information call the Nature Center at 920-854-5976.
