dc.descriptionThe Apostle Islands are located in northernmost Wisconsin at the tip of the Bayfield Peninsula (Fig. 1). Twenty of the 22 islands and a portion of the adjacent mainland constitute the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. The National Park Service manages the Lakeshore for various types of outdoor recreation. To facilitate sound planning and development, the National Park Service contracted with scientists at the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point to inventory the natural resources of several islands. The inventory consisted of soils and vegetation mapping, wildlife habitat evaluation, soil and water sample collection and analysis, and bank erosion rate measurement. Outer and Stockton Islands were inventoried during the summers of 1973 and 1979, respectively. This thesis contains two aspects of the Outer and Stockton Islands inventories: (1) an assessment of the suitability of Apostle Islands soils for supporting trails and campsites, and (2) an evaluation of bank erosion in the Presque Isle campground.en_US
