Work Play Earth Day - 2014

Work*Play*Earth Day events are coming up - mark your calendar to volunteer at one of the state parks, forests, trails or natural areas! Saturday - April 19, 26 and May 3, 2014 there are activities scheduled around the state!
Volunteers join Department of Natural Resources staff, local friends group members, and people from nearby communities for a day of getting their hands dirty helping repair and improve park and trail facilities.
Activities include planting trees and shrubs, installing benches, removing invasive plants, staining and painting picnic tables and other structures, raking and clearing up leaves and pine needles, and picking up litter. Refreshments will be provided and Friends of Wisconsin State Parks will also provide appreciation gifts for volunteers. When the work is done, volunteers join staff in hiking or biking park trails, visiting nature centers or interpretive displays, or enjoying any of the recreational opportunities available at the different parks.
