Before there was even a Newport State Park, Lee Frelich could be found exploring its forested area. Frelich credits the summers as a young boy looking for trees, plants, and wildlife in northern Door County for leading him to his current job at the University of Minnesota Center for Forest Ecology. During the upcoming hike he is leading near Europe Bay as a fundraiser for the Climate Change Coalition of Door County, Frelich hopes people see what the future has in store for the area.
Frelich will host the hikes at Newport State Park on July 27 and August 18. We have information on how you can sign up for the hikes online with this story.
