Building Leopold Benches

NWS volunteers began turning lumber into new Leopold Benches in early February…a great winter project. The benches will be installed at 13 Newport campsites when the weather permits.

This project was funded by NWS with the help of a $3,500 matching incentive grant from Friends of Wisconsin State Parks. It also includes the replacement of fire rings at 12 Newport campsites.
