Location: Richard Bong SRA

Join us for the first Nature Explore Workday. We're looking for help with cutting brush, building, weeding or other outdoor work. Drop in and stay as little or long as you like. No matter your abilities, there will be something to do! Meet at the Visitor Center.


Richard Bong SRA information

Once designated to be a jet fighter base, Richard Bong State Recreation Area is fittingly named after Major Richard I. Bong, a Poplar, WI native who was America's leading air ace during World War II. The air base was abandoned three days before concrete was to be poured for a 12,500-foot runway. Local citizens had the foresight to protect this open space for future generations.
