Lakeshore Chapter

Lakeshore Chapter Annual Meeting Saturday, February 27, 2016

We met at 9 a.m. at Woodland Dunes Nature Center, Two Rivers, WI. Plans for 2016, which include several opportunities for new trails, e.g., Mishicot Public School trail and Walla Hi County Park in southwest Manitowoc County, four miles east of Kiel, perhaps in 2017, from Mueller Rd. into the park and out to the west to Lax Chapel Rd.  2016 Lakeshore Chapter Annual Meeting Minutes

We Built 100′ of Boardwalk Last May

We built a boardwalk near Rockledge Rd. northwest of Mishicot on our new trail to cover seepage from the sedge field upslope of the trail.

History

The Lakeshore Chapter was formed in 2007, when volunteers from Door, Kewaunee and Manitowoc counties and the North Kettle Moraine area merged into one chapter. Our chapter members work to support the mission and goals of the Ice Age Trail Alliance by promoting, planning, building and maintaining the Ice Age Trail from Fond du Lac County to the Eastern Terminus in Sturgeon Bay.

If you notice any problems with the trails in the Lakeshore Chapter area (fallen trees, poor signage, etc.), please call the Ice Age Trail Alliance at 800-227-0046. We will fix the problem!

Get Involved on the Trail

We schedule work days at various locations throughout the year. In addition to the group activities listed in our 2016 Lakeshore Calendar of Events, we encourage people to get out onto the Trail through our Hiker Shuttle Service May 20 2016, Hall of Kamers [PDF] hiking award program, and the ColdCaching geological treasure hunt program.

Note: the correct phone number for the Hall of Kamers contact, Jim Powers, is 262-388-5143.
