DNR directed to reopen parks and forests
Gov. Tony Evers directed the Department of Natural Resources to re-open several state parks, forests, and recreational areas originally closed due to crowds and caution to protect public health.
The DNR will reopen 34 state parks and forests on May 1 under special conditions including the continued closure of restrooms, shelters, towers, playgrounds, and nature centers. Attractions and several parks where social distancing cannot be achieved will remain closed.
