A Door County non-profit organization is putting their efforts toward protecting the area’s vulnerable and important water sources. Healthy Water Door County is a part of the Door County Community Foundation that seeks to educate policymakers and invest in initiatives that could prevent any harm that could come to the water surrounding the peninsula. Coggin Heeringa, a member of the Healthy Water Door County Board of Advisors, said the organization provides possibilities for others to receive funding for conservation efforts.
Healthy Water Door County will attempt to raise awareness about its cause through the Celebrate Water Door County campaign. The effort will feature many book readings and family programs and will lead up to a three-day summit at the Landmark Resort in Egg Harbor. Held in June 2019, the summit will feature speakers from various fields of expertise and is open to anyone who pays a $35 cost.
