As a result, plans are underway for the Disc Golf and Foot Golf course being developed in the park for the coming year.

Engineering and design work on the new educational facility planned at the Broughton Sheboygan County Marsh Park is also moving forward. The project will be done in tune with the natural setting and sustainability at the forefront. LEED standards of construction are assuring highest energy efficiency and quality. Schmitt Construction and Legacy Architecture are reaching out to local contractors and vendors eager to become part of this new venture, encouraging donation of materials and talent to provide a facility that will serve as a venue to host generations of youth educational programs in the future. Naming rights to acknowledge donors are also underway.

Thousands of children visit the park each year to experience and learn about the environment benefits and history contained in the Sheboygan Marsh. The multi-purpose/educational center and meeting facility will house Camp Y-Koda’s environmental programs, many area school field trips, and other groups who appreciate conservation efforts and wildlife at the marsh.

The Friends of Broughton Sheboygan Marsh held their annual meeting Jan. 14 and elected the following officers for 2015: Lil Pipping, president; Keith Abler, vice president; Marjean Pountain, secretary; and Ken Pipping, treasurer. Additional members of the board include Aaron Brault, Ann Buechel Haack, Sarah DeZwarte, Julia Loo-Sutcliffe, Scott Mc Murray, James Whipple, Michael Ogea, and Walter Vollrath, III.
