For Now and for the Future Fund
Interpretive Nature Center Fund
Peninsula State Park Research Grant Fund
Friends of Peninsula State Park supports the Park’s mission: to protect the natural and scenic resources of the park and to provide compatible forms of outdoor recreation and education.
Over one million people visit the 3,776-acre park each year. At least 14,000 participate in nature programs. FPSP has engaged in centennial activities (2009) and invasive species management. It has allocated matching grant funds for an open-air shelter at Nicolet Beach (2011-12 project), bought ski trail grooming equipment, and purchased archival supplies. FPSP manages merchandise sales, with proceeds primarily funding the wages of the summer naturalist and invasive species coordinator. Friends have also supported program presenters such as Bat Conservation of Wisconsin.
FPSP provides critical support for Peninsula State Park, a premier property within the Wisconsin State Park System and a gateway to other Door County heritage sites.
