The Village of Ephraim is getting outside help to develop a plan to restore the Ephraim Wetlands. Heavy snows and a wet spring have combined to raise water levels in the nature area. That's limiting public access to the area because most walkways are submerged. Village Board member Cindy Nelson, who's chair of the Physical Facilities and Utilities Committee, says the village is working with the Door County Land Trust and UW-Oshkosh to develop a restoration plan.
A grant application to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Knowles-Nelson Stewardship is being considered for the Ephraim Wetlands restoration plan.
