You now have the option to give your input on what affects Door and Kewaunee County to the Conservation Congress online for the first time. The Wisconsin Conservation Congress has their spring hearing on Monday starting at 7 PM. All 72 counties in Wisconsin participate. This year there is a questionnaire with 88 questions on it. In years past, you were required to show up to the meeting in person in order to give your preferences to the questions. For the first time the questionnaire is available online.
There are a few questions directly related to Door County on this year’s questionnaire. Kewaunee County Conservation Congress Chairman Don Anderson says there is one question that pertains to the Mink River in Door County.
One of the other major questions that will be discussed is changing the youth hunting age back to 10 years old. In 2017, the state voted to remove the age restriction. Door County’s meeting place will be held at Sturgeon Bay High School while Kewaunee County’s will be at Kewaunee High School.
