Slinger High School Student Wins 2022 State Park And Forest Vehicle Admission Sticker Contest

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced that Slinger High School junior Kaylee Goodman is the winner of the 2022 Wisconsin State Park and Forest vehicle admission sticker contest. Goodman’s water-inspired design was selected for its creative approach to a sandy beach scene with footprints and wildlife tracks along the water. Goodman will receive an engraved plaque and a 2022 annual vehicle admission sticker featuring her design when stickers go on sale in early December. "Many of our properties feature beachfront access and opportunities for outdoor fun on and near the water, including miles of stunning Lake Michigan shoreline,” said Steve Schmelzer, DNR Parks Director. “This design does a wonderful job of celebrating those signature places and the wildlife we share them with."

 

The vehicle admission stickers provide access to more than 60 state park, forest and recreation area properties across Wisconsin. The stickers are required on all motor vehicles visiting state parks and recreation areas. Some state forest and trail parking areas also require a sticker.

 

The 2022 state park stickers and state trail passes go on sale Dec. 1. The 2022 stickers and passes for admission to parks, forests, recreation areas and trails are valid from the date of purchase through Dec. 31, 2022.  Annual admission stickers cost $28 for Wisconsin residents or $38 for non-residents. A family with more than one vehicle registered to the same household may purchase additional state park stickers for $15.50 for residents and $20.50 for non-residents. Wisconsin residents 65 years of age and older can buy a senior citizen annual sticker for $13.

Marshmallows over Campfire

Friends of Perrot State Park provide volunteer and financial support to Perrot State Park, providing visitors with enhanced opportunities to experience nature.

Friends continue to cut, split, and dry firewood, mostly from dead hazard trees in the campground, for sale to campers.  Because there was no cost for labor or materials for the firewood, sale of firewood is the major source of income for Friends. 

Our Wisconsin State Parks need your support more than ever.  Please become a member, donate, and volunteer!

Thanks to our Friends
