Tree planting is organized by one of the park rangers who helps decide where to plant and organizes volunteers getting the trees in the ground.
Carolyn Morgen, park superintendent, says High Cliff is one of the busiest state parks in Wisconsin, so there are many visitors who appreciate the opportunity to give back.
“It’s neat to see all the different groups of people come together from different backgrounds and interests to help out,” Morgen says.
Friends of High Cliff State Park will offer a hot dog lunch in the Pavilion area at 12pm.
Volunteers should bring shovels and work gloves, and wearing old clothes and water-resistant boots is recommended. Groups of six or more are asked to pre-register by calling 989-1106.
