Friends Group Makes Large Donation to Peninsula Park

Peninsula State Park near Fish Creek will have more naturalist activities available, be better positioned to deal with invasive species, and, have improved trail maintenance thanks to a $25,500 donation from the Friends of Peninsula State Park accepted by the State Natural Resources Board in Madison Wednesday. The “friends” group donation will cover the general wage and fringe benefit for a limited term naturalist position, invasive species coordinator and trail laborer through the 2016 season. The donation will allow the park to provide quality interpretive programs, general maintenance on trails, and, continued work on invasive species removal and documentation. Peninsula State Park offers popular naturalist programs to the more than one million people who visit the park each year.
