Having protected more than 8,000 acres of land throughout Door County, the Door County Land Trust is continuing their mission to protect open spaces, scenic beauty, and the area’s ecology. Chambers Island is the largest of all the nature preserves in Door County, according to Executive Director Tom Clay. He explains some of the work they have done recently.
Clay adds that protection work has been done in the Gibraltar Ephraim swamp area as well. He says the Door County Land Trust is always looking for additional protection opportunities. Southern Door County currently has one conservation easement in Clay Banks called the Legacy Preserve and Washington Island has a few preserves with a potential to grow, according to Clay.
