The Friends as well as the park itself make great efforts to be good stewards for the environment. We believe it is everyone's duty to do what they can when it comes to being environmentally conscious. That's why we are proud to say that this site it Hosted Green and that the park is a Certified Travel Green Wisconsin Destination.
This website is "300% Green"* due to the hosting company who gains their electrical power from renewable resources. The Friends of Gov Dodge could have chosen any number of hosting companies, but we made the decision to go green. With efforts like this, we can all start to live a greener life.

Travel Green Wisconsin Certified
Governor Dodge State Park is proud to claim that it is a Travel Green Wisconsin Certified Business. By providing education about the environment through interpretive programs, practicing sound recycling and reduction refuse management, wildlife and landscape conservation management and much more, the Wisconsin Department of Tourism has certified the park as being a destination that cares for the environment. Some highlights of other practices include:
How We're Green
We take an active roll in controlling invasive species like Garlic Mustard, Honeysuckle, Olive and Locust. Educating through funding of interpretive programs is a great way to instill a sense of stewardship. We are proud to be able to use some of our funds to pay for naturalist time and interpretive displays. Recycling, energy conservation and roadside clean-up are just a few more ways that we try to help the environment. The park is Carry-In Carry-Out. Whatever you bring into the park, please take it back out with you.
