Some Door County waterfront remains in its natural state while songbird habitat is now successfully restored thanks to the efforts of the Door County Land Trust. Those successes will be celebrated at the Trust’s “Celebrating Open Spaces Weekend and Gathering” on August 18th and 19th. The event includes kayaking and boat tours and hikes around some of the areas now under protection. The 20th annual event, “The Gathering”, celebrates the “Year of the Bird”. Door County Land Trust Development Director Cinnamon Rossman says birds are a great indicator of habitat restoration efforts.
Many events for Saturday, August 18th are free except for small fees for boating and kayak tours. Tickets for “The Gathering” on Sunday, August 19th cost $40 per person.
