Newport SP Friends & Volunteers

We are a dedicated group of volunteers who help with a variety of projects, programs, and events
at Newport State Park in Door County, Wisconsin.
Our work is ongoing and year-round.


We are part of the 
Newport Wilderness Society (NWS), the Friends Group of Newport State Park. We use this email group to facilitate communication among volunteers.

    • Newport Wilderness Days event (September)

    • Dark Sky events (year round)

  • Hike and program leaders (flora, fauna, trees, history, geology, etc.)

  • Every Day is Earth Day conference

  • Serving on the board of the Newport Wilderness Society

  • Working at the park office (application and background check required)

  • Special projects: longterm infrastructure projects; updating displays and kiosks; helping in the Nature Center

  • Trail maintenance: clearing downed trees, clearing brush, removing invasive plants.

July 2021 update:
 Although volunteer work in the park in 2020-21 was dramatically curtailed because of the Covid pandemic, we have restarted outdoor projects and events as Covid restrictions are eased. We follow the guidelines of the WI Dept. of Health Services and the WI Dept. of Natural Resources.
