Fall Color Walk at Lincoln Park

enjoyed a walk in the park with Friends of Lincoln Park last Sunday. Award winning photographer (and EPA project manager) Brenda Jones joined us to give tips on fall color photography.  And Julie, plant biologist helped with tree and plant identification to make this an educational and soul-stirring event.

This is an area that was under construction this summer. I look forward to when the Estabrook Dam is functioning again and see an increase in river depth in this area.

High Cliff State Park on Lake Winnebago

High Cliff State Park is named for a limestone Cliff of the Niagara Escarpment, which parallels the eastern shore of Lake Winnebago. A 125-acre within the 1,196-acre park is designated as a state natural area in recognition of its excellent cliff environments and more than a mile of Lake Winnebago shoreline.

The Niagara Escarpment features both shaded and exposed cliff habitats and the talus slopes supporting wet-mesic forest. Outstanding examples of conical and effigy mounds are in the level woodland above the escarpment.
