POST UPDATE: The following posts have been affected by extreme flooding that has occurred on several occasions across the county. We will update this as things change.
  • Coldwater Creek WMA: The post was washed away early in the summer but has been replaced. The image on the post will not match the image in your guidebook. More recent flooding has washed out part of the parking area. It is still fully accessible, just use caution when driving in the parking area.
  • Riverside Park, Spillville: Flooding washed away the post and we don't have one to replace it with this year. The park itself is still undergoing extensive clean up, so we ask that you avoid it until further notice. Instead, choose a park or natural area of your choice and make a leaf/bark rubbing or draw a picture of something you see to complete that page in your guidebook. 
  • Fort Atkinson Community Park: Flooding washed away the post and we don't have one to replace it with this year. The park itself is still undergoing extensive clean up, so we ask that you avoid it until further notice. Instead, choose a park or natural area of your choice and make a leaf/bark rubbing or draw a picture of something you see to complete that page in your guidebook.
