Peninsula to Offer New Years Hike


Check out FIRST DAY events from around the state!

Peninsula State Park will be offering a FIRST DAY HIKE in conjunction with other state parks across the nation. Ours begins at 10 a.m. from the Nature Center on January 1, 2012. Park admission is free at Peninsula on January 1 and trail pass requirements are waived that day, too.

Even though its Packer Sunday, the Badgers are playing, and some of you will be taking the Polar Bear Plunge at Jacksonport, consider joining naturalist Kathleen Harris New Year’s Day morning!

The Nature Center will likely be open the afternoon of January 1, perhaps with the radio on so we can hear the game! If anyone is interested in helping staff the Nature Center that afternoon, please let Kathleen (kathleen.harris@wisconsin.gov) know. Kids are welcome to help staff the Center, too.

NOTE: Peninsula will have a full schedule the week between December 25 and January 1, as usual. Stay tuned.
