Friends of Peninsula State Park are closing in on fundraising goals for Eagle Tower and have ambitions to improve the Nature Center as their next project. The reconstructed version of Eagle Tower at Peninsula State Park will be a taller tower with a ramp that runs through the trees in the woods. The group is projecting its completion for sometime in 2019. Steve Strucely, Business Manager of Friends of Peninsula State Park, says the Eagle Tower project has consumed most of the group’s attention this past year.
Steve says he is extremely appreciative of the donor support that has put them this close to reaching their goal. He says their next focus will be to improve the Nature Center. The anticipated improvements to the Nature Center would include: more room for educational programs; increased space for displaying exhibits and storage; better restrooms and additional parking.
