T. H. Stone St. Joseph Peninsula State Park was recently named the country’s No. 1 state park by a popular destination website.

This Saturday the Friends of the St. Joseph Peninsula State Park want to show off the treasure they volunteer to maintain.

The Friends will sponsor St. Joseph State Park Appreciation Day this Saturday as part of National Lands Day.

There will be a morning shoreline cleanup and beverages and food will be served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET.

The South Gulf County Volunteer Fire Department will be doing the grilling and Scallop Cove will be providing ice cream for the kids.

The Appreciation Day kicks off in earnest from 3-7 p.m. with music from the Flabbergasted Band at Eagle Harbor. The music can be enjoyed from a boat or on land.

There will be a host of activities throughout the day.
