Peninsula State Park Arbor Day Hike April 24

In 1872, a Nebraskan newspaper editor advocated for a tree planting holiday. Today, we call it Arbor Day. Celebrate Arbor Day this year with a nature walk at Peninsula State Park! Meet at Weborg Shelter building at 1 p.m., ready for a leisurely walk near shore and forest. The one hour outdoor adventure will highlight tree species and forest habitat preferred by our feathered friends. Bring binoculars if you have them. The hike is free and open to the public but a state park admission sticker is needed for entrance to the park. If you need more information call Peninsula at 920-868-3258.

Peninsula State Park is located on the shores of Green Bay in Door County.
