On May 19th Ephraim was designated as a Bird City. We attended a ceremony at the Ephraim Visitor’s Center. This was a collaboration among the Ephraim Business Council, the Peninsula State Park and the Village of Ephraim. The event was attended by Smokey the Bear, who greeted guests as they arrived for the ceremony.
A special award was given to Ephraim resident, Scott Weborg for his volunteerism at the state park and the Smokey the Bear Fire Prevention Program. He is a mainstay of Ephraim, so if you see him around town, congratulate him. He often sits at the old Ephraim Fire Station, greeting tourists and hoping you will drop a donation in the fire boot to help the fire station museum.
