When you visit the park you will notice in the campground the remnants of many large shade trees that gave campers respite from the sun. Maybe your favorite site will feel a bit different and maybe a little less private. With time this will pass, the sun will now reach younger trees spurring growth and creating a new canopy.
This spring the employees at Perrot have worked hard to clear the way for returning campers. To make the campground and picnic areas safe by removing trees that posed a threat. When you visit the park remember fondly the trees that held our heads high towards the sky and regard those that had the unpleasant job of having them removed.
Note: A reminder to all that there is a 10 mile quarantine around Perrot for moving firewood. It's just one step of many that helps prevent the spread of invasive insects and diseases. The Friends of Perrot provide fire wood for sale at the park and the proceeds go towards the Nature Center and it's programs.
