The Door County Land Trust has several active acquisition projects planned for 2021. Executive Director Tom Clay says plans call for expansion of Kellner Fen Nature Preserve near Sturgeon Bay, Big and Little Marsh State Natural Area on Washington Island, Gibraltar-Ephraim swamp acreage, White Cliff Fen in Egg Harbor and Chambers Island Nature Preserve which is closing in on over 1,000 acres. Clay says besides expansion to nature preserves located north of Sturgeon Bay, southern Door County properties are presenting opportunities as well.
Clay adds that a beautiful property near Stony Creek is also being considered for protection. The Door County Land Trust manages over 8,500 acres of properties in the county.
