The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources hopes to lure visitors to the state’s natural spaces this weekend by offering open houses and “license-free” fishing.
The Milwaukee County Parks system is taking a different approach to highlighting its green spaces.
It will host a party Saturday at McKinley Park, kicking-off the parks system’s 105th anniversary.
The event will also launch a “passport” program designed to focus attention on the Oak Leaf Trail. It carries bikers and hikers to numerous county parks.
WUWM Environmental Reporter Susan Bence hit a piece of the trail to witness one person’s approach to selling a parks system.
