MADISON – Wisconsin state park visitors will again be able to go online to vote for their favorite state park features in the third annual “best of the best” Wisconsin State Park features contest, which this year will also allow people to submit photographs taken in Wisconsin State Parks for a 2009 calendar.

Information on Wisconsin State Parks and Trails can be found at on the Wisconsin State Parks Web site at [www.wiparks.net].

“Friends of Wisconsin State Parks are asking your help picking the best features of the best state park system in the country,” said Kate Zurlo-Cuva, DNR liaison to FWSP. “It takes about two minutes for park and trail visitors to vote online.”

“We hope that hidden favorite spots and beloved secrets will surface,” notes Bill Lunney, a board member of the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks. He adds, “As volunteers who are passionate about our state parks and trails, it brings our members great joy to see what others love about the state park system as well.”

The Friends of Wisconsin State Parks (FWSP) is sponsoring the voting and contest and asking visitors to submit votes and entries through their Web site at [www.fwsp.org] (exit DNR).
