Land donation expands Chambers Island preserve to nearly 700 acres

The Chambers Island Nature Preserve has now grown to nearly 700 acres of hardwood forests and wetlands.  The Door County Land Trust announced the donation of nine-acres of land previously adjacent to the preserve by Pete and Fawn Rogers of Appleton.  Pete Rogers says he sees it as a gift for both people and wildlife.



Door County Land Trust Land Program Director Julie Shartner says such a donation is helping the group reach a lofty goal.



Schartner says the trust is working with other Chambers Island property owners and expects to acquire more lands in 2019.
