The 600-acre Chambers Island Nature Preserve has grown by 50 acres. The Door County Land Trust acquired two more parcels of land on the island. Those include a 10-acre hardwood and hemlock forest and a 40-acre mixed hardwood forest. Door County Land Trust Development Director Cinnamon Rossman says both locations adjoin the preserve.
Rossman says the new lands will preserve woodlands that are unlike any on the Door County mainland.
The Door County Land Trust is working now to acquire one more parcel which will allow for expansion of foot trails through the Chambers Island Nature Preserve.
