The Door County Land Trust is increasing its capacity to carry out its mission in two different but related ways. First, it passed a significant milestone related to the number of acres it protects. With recent acquisitions, the Land Trust now protects more than 8,000 acres of fields, forests, farmlands, orchards, wetlands, and shoreline. A second way the Land Trust is building its capacity is through a more ambitious use of volunteer expertise. Tom Clay, Executive Director, says that a point of focus in 2018 will be to recruit and train more even citizen scientists.
Tom is confident that bringing in more citizen scientists will permit the Land Trust to collect and analyze more data and be in a position to better serve the land and community. Information about how to be a volunteer for the Land Trust can be found at http://www.doorcountylandtrust.org/volunteer-page/.
