Grants helping Door Bluff Headlands Park Natural Area expand

A series of grants is helping the Door County Parks and Facilities Department pay off property purchased to expand the Door Bluff Headlands Park Natural Area.  The county recently received a $50,000 Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant for the expansion.  The nearly 73-acres adjoining Door Bluff Headlands Park were purchased for $450,000.  Parks and Facilities Superintendent Ben Nelson says the grant monies will go to cover short term financing from Door County.



In all, five grants will be used to repay that short term loan.  On August 20th, the Parks and Facilities Department will receive a $100,000 grant from the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program.  The final grant from the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund is expected by years end.
