Onalaska High School students worked one day of Spring Break to rough out a new trail on the west hillside of Carlisle Lake. The trail heads northwest up the hill through the forested area of the park to the top of the property. Students used clippers, machetes, and weed eaters to clear brush and debris to make the walking path. More work will continue through the summer work parties. This provides more opportunities to see the beautiful natural areas of the park and give walkers another area to walk. Watch for tmore of his trail to be developed. Thank you to Mr. Hoffman, HS teacher for organizing this project.
Onalaska Alliance is excited to host the annual Easter Egg Hunt in Carlisle Park, located on Carlisle Ave one block south of Onalaska High School. Children from ages 1-11 race for eggs hidden in under the old growth fir trees in Carlisle Park, originally donated by Carlisle family to the Onalaska School District. The hunt begins at noon. Children who find a "golden" receive get a free chocolate bunny. A big thank you to the Apple Harvest Royal Court who help set up and hand chocolate bunnies.
