Significant grant to protect Hine's Emerald Dragonfly in Door County

You will be able to enjoy more of the Hine’s emerald dragonfly on the peninsula thanks to a special grant awarded to the Door County Land Trust. A Midwest Coastal Grant of $196,396 through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will go a long way in eliminating invasive species plants at the Kellner Fen Natural Area north of Sturgeon Bay. Door County Land Trust Executive Director Emily Wood says the organization is excited to be able to do more restoration and protection of the habitat.

 

 

Director of Charitable Giving Cinnamon Rossman says the grant targets common and glossy buckthorn and honeysuckle shrubs with toxic chemicals that threaten the Hine’s emerald dragonfly population at the Kellner Fen Natural Area.

 

 

Because the Hine’s emerald dragonfly forages well beyond its breeding location, improving the natural area will benefit the dragonfly by restoring native ecological processes and drastically improving the habitat. You can learn about the Door County Land Trust efforts with this link.
