Land Trust buys Washington Island hardwood forest area

Some hardwood forest near the Big and Little Marsh State Natural Area is now under the protection of the Door County Land Trust.  The organization purchased the 20-acre parcel from private owners. That brings its total Washington Island holdings to 721-acres. The new protected site is home to stands of maple and beech trees.  Land Trust Director of Charitable Giving, Cinnamon Rossman says the forest land and the nearby marshland are a haven for wildlife and endangered plants.

 

 

 

The acquisition of the 20-acre hardwood stand now connects with other conservation land and forms a protected corridor of forest and wetlands.
