The Gibraltar Historical Association of Fish Creek kicks off its 2013 "Gibraltar Talks" series May 9 with a program about the importance of preserving historic and natural areas of Door County.
Tim Stone, president of the Door County Land Trust, will be presenting the program -- "Nature's Heritage Preserved" -- May 9 at 7 p.m. at the old Gibraltar Town Hall on the corner of Spruce and Maple Streets in Fish Creek. A question and answer period will follow. Stone and his wife purchased property on Moonlight Bay in 1980 and moved to Door County full time in 2005.
Since 1986, more than 6,500 acres in almost every corner of Door County and its islands have been preserved. If you are concerned about what will someday happen to your Door County property and want to explore whether permanently protecting all or part of your property makes sense for you and your family, this program could help you find out.
Copies of the book, A Guide to the Places We Protect, will be available for purchase.
Gibraltar Talks programs are free and open to the public.
