You can add another 30 acres to the parcel of land within the Gibraltar-Ephraim Swamp Natural Area under Door County Land Trust protection. The organization made the announcement on Friday, which brings the acreage protected by the Land Trust up to 307 acres within the 1,600-acre swamp. Executive Director Tom Clay says protecting this particular piece of land is important for the area’s water quality.
In addition to helping water quality, Clay says the parcel is important for the area’s migratory bird conservation efforts. The Door County Land Trust is aiming to raise at least another $136,000 to protect more of the Gibraltar-Ephraim Swamp Natural Area as well wetland areas on Washington Island and in southern Door County.
