Vandals have once again targeted Wisconsin Point. While patrolling the area Thursday, Nov. 28, Superior Police Officer Charles Mahlen found that the steel ventilation slats on the doors to the public restrooms at lot 5 had been damaged.

Lot 5, which is next to the Superior Entry Lighthouse, was the same site where a section of the new wooden boardwalk was burned by fireworks on the Fourth of July. Five boards had to be replaced.

Both boardwalk and restrooms were part of the $1.5 million Wisconsin Point Restoration Project, which wrapped up in September. The work included restoration of 85,000 square feet of shoreline, 85 acres of forest and 150 acres of sensitive coastal habitat with enhanced access to fishing and birding.
