Together, Terry Andrae and John Kohler State Parks contain over 2 miles of beaches and sand dunes that are home to unique vegetation that grow specifically in the area.
Terry Andrae’s wife Elsbeth referred to the land as her “pine dunes,” and took it upon herself to restore them after they were devastated by fires in the late 1800s.
She hired forestry consultants to reforest the land and later donated 122 acres to the state after Terry’s death. Although it’s named in his memory, Elsbeth’s role in conserving her “pine dunes” is worth recognition. #kohlerandraestatepark#wistateparkspage#wistateparkspage
