Friends of Harrington Beach

2019 Fall Harvest Hike Scheduled and More

BRRRRRRR!  Minus 22 this morning and that should not be in my vocabulary. If you are outdoors at the park to walk and view the ice shelves, be smart and bundle up!  The ice shelves off the beach may not be stable because of undercutting by the water flow.  (I'll take my mom hat off now!)

Enjoy the beautiful sounds and color of Wisconsin Winter at Harrington Beach.  Our Facebook followers are posting beautiful pictures!   Keep your eyes open for photo contests and calendar photo submissions by Friends of Wisconsin State Parks or Wisconsin DNR.

Two events have been added to our Friends calendar under the EVENTS tab.  The annual Work/Earth/Play day starts at 9am until 1pm on Saturday, April 27th at Harrington Beach.  Contact the office to sign up.  Bring your scout troop, civic or family group to help beautify our park.  I am sure there will be trees to plant.

Saturday, October 12 from 6pm until 8pm was just scheduled for our Fall Harvest Hike.  We will offer food, hot beverages, music and chili with lots of treats!  Walk the beach or around the Quarry Lake.

We moved the start of our open-to-the-public board meetings to 6pm.  If you have considered getting more involved in the decision making and planning with the Friends, a non-profit, 501c organization, reach out to us via email at , call the park office at 262-285-3015 or call Nancy Hise at 920-915-1595.  We are holding our annual dinner/meeting April 25th.  At that meeting we hold board member election.  Several board members positions are open.  Nancy can give you more information about the time commitment involved in board participation.

Again, enjoy the park and stay in touch with the Friends!  Happy Winter Days!
