The University of Wisconsin Green Bay has formed a partnership with Toft Point Inc. in hopes to preserve the condition of a portion of land in the Door County area. Toft Point is a peninsula that is on the Lake Michigan side of Door County that is located just outside of Baileys Harbor. The state nature area is made up of 732 acres that includes forest and wetland type terrains. The University actually owns part of the 732 acres of land, and the goal of this partnership is to maintain the natural area and continue to use it for scientific research, as well as scientific education.
UW-Green Bay Professor and Director of the University Conference Center for Biodiversity Bob Howe explains how the area holds more value than a common park:
Gifts to benefit Toft Point can be made payable to the UW-Green Bay Foundation Toft Point Stewardship Fund.
