The Village of Ephraim is looking to adopt the seven Leave No Trace Behind principles to help become part of the global growing green destination movement. Door County is partnering with the Colorado-based Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. Those principles include informing visitors ahead of time what they need to know to protect the natural beauty and wildlife native to Door County. The village's Green Tier Ad Hoc Committee heard more about the program from Cambria Mueller, the Community Advocacy Manager with Destination Door County. Mueller says Leave No Trace Behind organizers is tailoring each community's specific green policies while also sending a unified message about resource protection.
The Green Tier Ad Hoc Committee also decided to proceed with further development of plans to provide tree seedlings for property owners and businesses as part of the Big Plant campaign.
