Peninsula State Park Offers Spring Walk

Peninsula State Park offers a spring walk to a black ash swamp on April 28, 10-11 am. Tucked behind Peninsula’s Nature Center, fed by spring water oozing from the bluff edges, is a temporal wetland. Sturdy black ash trees rise up from a forest floor carpeted with ferns. Despite recent snow, the swamp is greening up. Join Peninsula’s naturalist for a peek at this often overlooked natural gem. The hike is easy walking for less than half a mile. Swamp edges will be muddy, so wear appropriate shoes/boots. This site is showing signs of emerald ash borer. Learn the key to this site’s survival, and which species already stake a claim there. This program is free and open to the public, but a state park vehicle sticker is required.
