Friends of Harrington Beach State Park Recipient of Friends of Wisconsin State Parks HERO Award

The Friends of Harrington Beach have received the HERO award from the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks in recognition of the building of the accessible cabin in the campground. The HERO awards recognize a DNR Land manager, a local Friends group (us) and an Individual Friends member who has shown outstanding dedication to support state parks, forests, and trails. An award banquet for Friends groups state-wide is being held tonight in Madison. We will be recognized along with other individuals and groups for our contribution to Wisconsin State Parks.  Well done, Friends!!
