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.
