Rock and Roll Fossils at Peninsula State Park

631 days old

Time: 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Activities: Drop-in Program, Geology
Location: Peninsula SP

Peninsula State Park celebrates the Wisconsin Science Festival by welcoming UW geology students. Stop by Park Headquarters anytime from 4 - 6 p.m. to meet these "rock hounds". See fossils from the park's ancient coral reef and learn how they formed. Stay for ten minutes or longer. This program is free and open to the public but a state park vehicle sticker is required. 


Peninsula SP information

Considered Wisconsin's most complete park, Peninsula offers 468 campsites, three group camps, a summer theater, an 18-hole golf course, sand beach, bike trails, a lighthouse and eight miles of Door County shoreline. The rollicking waves that skip towards Peninsula's sky high bluffs are part of the Niagara Escarpment.
