A Little Bit Of Europe At Birchwood Lodge In Sister Bay

For the past 15 years, Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay has welcomed foreign students to work as part of our summer housekeeping/front desk crews. Most of the students travel here on work/study visas from Europe for summer employment.  At the end of the season, they take off for trips to areas all around America.  This year we had eleven university students representing Czech Republic, Romania and Croatia.  Our hard working group still found time to visit many of the scenic spots all around Door County.  The Bridges Program, established by combined churches in Door County, helps students not only acclimate to their new work/living arrangements here, it provides recreational and entertainment opportunities as well.  By the end of October, we say good-bye to Iulia, Celina, Eduord, Dalia, Ana, Laura, Alina, Mariana, Josepa, Marina with good wishes for success as they complete their educational goals.

Door County Icon Disappears From The Landscape

Perhaps one of the traditions you always include when you come up for a stay at Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay, is to take a hike or drive through Peninsula State Park.  If you’re adventurous, you might climb 250 feet up to the top of Eagle Tower to take in a panoramic view of Green Bay.  Well, sad to say, Eagle Tower in Peninsula State Park is no more. The park closed the tower to public use in May 2015 to protect public safety after an inspection report raised significant concerns over its structural integrity and an inspection by the U.S. Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory found considerable deterioration of the structural and non-structural wood members.  Every piece of lumber used for the tower is being inspected and the hopes are that some of the wood and timber may be used for other purposes around Door County.  While a full week was scheduled for the deconstruction process, the entire tower was completely removed by the end of the first day.  Door County residents and tourists are saddened by the loss of this iconic Door County landmark, however, plans are underway for a new tower to be built on the same spot. The Friends of Peninsula State Park in cooperation with interested community members has formed a subcommittee, the Eagle Tower Fund Committee, which is raising funds to rebuild Eagle Tower.
