Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands making rehabilitation progress

Two of Door County’s smallest islands and most treasured reserves received some valuable attention this past weekend.  Friends of Plum and Pilot Island removed invasive plants, trimmed trails and repaired the roof of the fog signal station among other clean up jobs.  Volunteer Mary Beth Vollmer says a pier section was damaged during the winter so work is being done to repair that this spring. 


Vollmer says a major project is coming up later in July. 


Five additional work days on Plum and Pilot Island are scheduled for later this summer.  Located at the east end of Death’s Door passage and uninhabited, Plum and Pilot Islands are part of the Green Bay National Wildlife Refuge.  You can find contact information on Friends of Plum and Pilot Island below.
