President’s Message

Hello – I’m not a fan of extreme cold but I like winter, and am happy to finally see snow once again blanketing the beautiful prairies in Lakeshore State Park!  I hope you enjoy the winter wonderland as much as I do.

You may have noticed that we don’t send a newsletter in January. Our volunteer board and committee members have been busy during that time doing outreach, putting together plans for projects and events for the rest of the year. I’m happy to report that for events we are planning an increased number and variety of activities coming to the park in 2023, all at no charge. 

Looking ahead to warmer weather, we’re excited to be partnering with Milwaukee Kayak Company on monthly sunset paddles in June, July and August. As dates are set for all the upcoming events, we’ll list them here in our newsletter, and post information on our social media (links at bottom of the page), and on our website calendar:

Finally, we got notice that the Amazon Smiles program is shutting down. While we didn’t receive much income from that source, every bit helps to support the many programs we offer at the park. So please consider donating below. And if you want to get involved, we always could use help at the park or on committees – if interested please contact us here:
