Visitors to Peninsula State Park can drop by the nature center on Saturday, March 14, for a “Green” Campfire Cook-out in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
Participants can learn how to prepare and cook green pancakes in pudgy pie irons and sample “beach slime” dip from 11 am to 12:30 pm. Recipes feature healthy ingredients such as oats, chopped spinach and zesty lime.
Emma the emerald ash borer beetle (a.k.a. the park naturalist) will be the guest chef. Emma and her kin recently arrived in Door County, “hungry” for ash trees. Families can stick around to craft an EAB beetle to keep while learning how EAB might change the forest.
This program is free and open to the public. Cooking equipment, food, and craft supplies provided (while supplies last). A state park admission sticker is needed for entrance to the park.
