Escarpment center making strides

An interpretative center focusing on Door County’s chief geologic feature is getting closer to opening. Efforts by the Greater Escarpment Organization of Door County to open an interpretative center began seven years ago and it could begin offering lectures at its Ellison Bay location later this year. Fundraising has been a key issue for the Escarpment Discovery Center, which has been working hard getting enough funds to renovate the building so it can house interactive exhibits and be ADA compliant. GEO-DC chairperson Nancy Goss says while exhibits inside its building are still over a year away, they are partnering with local groups to provide educational opportunities in 2019.

GEO-DC hired Ellison Bay native Amanda Beard earlier this year to guide the next steps of developing the exhibits inside the Escarpment Discovery Center.
