This weekend there will be a lot to do at Devil’s Lake State Park and on Saturday, don’t miss “Bagpipes at the Glen” over at Durward’s Glen Retreat just a few minutes away. Remember too, that if you’re looking to try a new trail stop up at the nature center Thur, Fri & Saturday mornings between 9-10am to “Find A Trail” where the naturalist will share hiking ideas, new locations and answer any trail questions you may have.
So, here’s what’s up this weekend…
Devil’s Lake State Park Events

Meet at the Northern Lights Amphitheater

Meet at the North Shore Boat Launch
Join us for a unique way to explore the lake – at night! This year we’ll be paddling during the full moon. We’ll decorate our boats with glow sticks before launching out into the night.
You’ll need to bring your own kayak, canoe, or boat to participate. You will be required to wear a life jacket during the program.
Preregister: by calling the Nature Center at (608) 356-8301 Ext. 140, so we can have enough glow sticks.
