  • Friends Of Wisconsin State Parks Choose Their Favorite Spots

    Whether you’re a birder, a fan of wildflowers, or would like to spot an elk sometime, there are many great places in Wisconsin to enjoy and explore. While any wander through nature is its own reward, sometimes, people want to plan their experiences.

    Each year, the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks choose some of the most noteworthy state parks in several categories. The awards are determined by votes from the public, and the actual award presentations will take place Oct. 11 at the annual Friends of Wisconsin State Parks Awards Banquet and annual meeting to be held at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitors Center.

    Here are this year’s winners:

    Both WPR host Larry Meiller and guest Scott Craven said that they know several of these spots themselves. Craven, an emeritus wildlife ecologist with University of Wisconsin Extension especially enjoys the view from the tower at Peninsula State Park.

    “Oh that’s a beautiful spot, that tower’s great,” Craven said “Overlooking the bay there, with the sailboats anchored in, and the swimming beach, and out over Green Bay, it’s spectacular.”

    Meiller and Craven agree that the Richard Bong State Recreation Area is a wonderful place among many to enjoy nature. But of course, people can hardly go wrong with getting out in nature anywhere in Wisconsin.
