Norskedalen Nature and Heritage Center
June 9 - June 15
Norskedalen is a Nature & Heritage Center dedicated to preserving the Norwegian Culture and the Natural environment found in Wisconsin’s Driftless Area. Nine+ miles of established hiking trails need maintenance after two years of massive flood damage. In addition, there are three new trails ready for development. New trails are following old logging trails and deer paths; while the ‘trail’ is naturally marked at this point, there will be heavy work involved in clearing brush and trees. Established trails needing maintenance will involve reshaping in some instances and clearing debris in others. Lodging for the week will be in historic buildings, although modern plumbing has been added! One goal for the week will be to rejuvenate the existing trails so that guests may enjoy the natural beauty of Norskedalen’s setting. A second goal will be to clear and establish at least one of the three trails marked for new use.
