With the tourist season behind them, Friends groups at Door County’s state parks are springing into action to clean up. Volunteers play catch-up on small projects that often get ignored during the peak season and provide final checks on campsites and facilities before winter. Newport State Park Manager Michelle Hefty says activities like picking up trash and trimming trees help make the transition to different winter recreational opportunities easier.
Sponsored by the Newport Wilderness Society, volunteers can head to the park’s maintenance building for this year’s Fall-Clean-Up Day on Saturday beginning at 8:30 a.m.
