Invasive species fight continues despite pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic and “Safer at Home” order have not stopped the effort to control invasive plants and aquatic lifeforms around Door County. While control efforts have been slightly scaled back, the county has received several state and federal grants to aid control efforts.  Samantha Koyen with the Door County Soil and Water Conservation Department says those funds have been used to hire limited-term employees for research and contractors to help with invasives removal, Self-cleaning facilities have also opened at two area boat launches.




Smaller boat cleaning facilities have also been installed at launch sites in Murphy and Chaudoir parks to aid with the invasive control efforts.
