From Phyllis - HBSP Naturalist Educator
Phyllis is currently busy scheduling summer programming for our visitors/campers.
Here are two areas, among many, that she is asking for volunteers.

Wanted: Friends interested in photography to help plan and orchestrate a Wildflower
Photography Contest at Harrington Beach State Park. As flowers begin to unfold this
spring, visitors to the park can begin snapping digital pictures for the Wildflower
Photography Contest. I'm looking for a few people to help decide how best to
submit, judge, and share these photos of the park. If you'd like to help, contact Phyllis at

In an effort to more appropriately honor those remembered with benches around the park,
we will begin removing the most worn benches and benches located in risky situations.
Anyone associated with a bench in the park, who did not contact the park last summer,
should contact the park office with their name, phone number and a description of the
location of the bench and to whom the bench was dedicated. This is especially important
for benches that have no plaque on them. Call 262-285-3015 and leave a message; mail
your information to the park office, Harrington Beach State Park, 531 Co Rd D, Belgium
WI 53004; or email to .

Be Safe and Healthy!
