Door County Land Trust acquisition a water quality indicator

The Door County Land Trust has acquired a 40-acre  easement that will protect a threatened dragonfly that's known as a natural water quality indicator.  The trust closed on the purchase from Tom and Cynthia Wolfe last week. The property is located off of County Highway F between Baileys Harbor and the Town of Gibraltar.  The new property is home to some endangered species, including the Hine's Emerald Dragonfly.  Land Trust Executive Director Tom Clay says that insects can help researchers determine the current state of area waterway and Lake Michigan.

 

 

The new land trust acquisition will add another wetland to the existing wetland corridor between Ephraim and Baileys Harbor in the area.
