It took just two weeks for the Door County Land Trust to reach its $500,000 goal for its preservation efforts of Sister Bay’s Pebble Beach. A generous donation by Sister Bay’s Bob and Mary Wiley helped close the gap for the $2.5 million purchase of the area, which includes 17 acres of undeveloped land and 600 feet of shoreline. Door County Land Trust Executive Director Tom Clay told DoorCountyDailyNews.com last month that their work will not be done just because they raised the money.
The land surrounding Pebble Beach is being purchased with assistance from the Village of Sister Bay through possible future funds from the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program and a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Door County Land Trust expects to close on the property in September.
