Smokey Bear Visits Peninsula State Park

Smokey Bear is stopping by Peninsula State Park to make sure folks are following fire safety rules on May 26, 4 –6 pm, as they check in at Park Headquarters. Then on May 28 families have another chance to shake paws when Smokey stops by the Nature Center from 1 to 2 pm. Kids will hear the true story of Smokey from the park naturalist, just before he arrives. Those who can recite, “Only you can prevent wild fires,” will receive Smokey Bear prizes (while supplies last).

While at the Nature Center, families can hike the half-mile, family-friendly trail, featuring new deer ecology signs funded by Whitetails Unlimited. Peninsula programs are free and open to the public but a state park vehicle sticker is required. For more information, call 920.854.5976 or email Park Naturalist Kathleen Harris at [email protected].
