You may soon see nearly $95,000 of Wisconsin Coastal Management Grants go to work in Door and Kewaunee counties.

 

It was part of $1.4 million in grants announced by Governor Tony Evers on Monday morning.  Over $23,000 will assist the Door County Soil and Water Conservation Department continue its efforts through the Door County Invasive Species Team with prevention, communication, and monitoring plans. The Town of Gardner received $6,250 for help updating its comprehensive plan and the Village of Ephraim received over $26,000 to reconstruct 360 feet of boardwalk in its wetland preserve to make it more accessible for visitors. The Door County Facilities and Parks Department earned $12,000 in grant dollars to acquire approximately four acres of wooded land near Meridan County Park in Baileys Harbor.

 

Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Department Director Davina Bonness told DoorCounty DailyNews.com last week that its $27,000 in grant funding will go toward testing wells to see the progress the community has made in addressing its groundwater concerns over the last five years.

Just under $50,000 has been earmarked for the UW System for the site nomination and selection process for its future Green Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve Designation.  Sturgeon Bay is among the three finalists for a NERR facility.
