Friends Board Meeting and Annual Member Picnic
Saturday, August 21st, 2021 at 3:00 PM
New Glarus Woods State Park

Attention Friends’ members, trail enthusiasts, interested parties and anyone who wants to learn about the trails–we invite you to attend our annual live meeting and picnic. Yes, this is a live meeting, not a Zoom meeting!  Food and soft drinks will be available. Come join us at the New Glarus Woods State Park shelter for a combined meeting and social gathering. We will have a featured speaker, Ms. Linda Gebhardt of the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin, who will discuss what is involved with setting up a foundation to guarantee ongoing funds for maintenance of the trails. You can find the August Meeting Agenda here. 

When you get to the main gate to the park, tell the ranger that you are there for the Friends meeting and you will not have to purchase a pass.
