The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will give the public a chance to hear a familiar tale May 1 when it explains why the observation tower at Potawatomi State Park near Sturgeon Bay must come down. In February, Forest Product Laboratory staff inspected the tower and disconvered that much like Eagle Tower at Peninsula State Park, it had suffered significant decay to the point that it cannot be repaired. Missy VanLanduyt from the DNR told DoorCountyDailyNews.com earlier this month the decision was made following the Forest Product Laboratory’s report.
VanLanduyt said there are no plans to replace the observation tower at Potawatomi State Park, but other options are being looked at for viewing opportunities. The meeting will take place at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay beginning at 6 p.m.
