Amphibians, birds, and you will have more room to roam at the Door County Land Trust’s Legacy Preserve in the Town of Clay Banks thanks to a recent land donation.
The Door County Land Trust announced on Friday the donation of 150 feet of Lake Michigan shoreline by Kathryn, Luke, and Marta Bogdanowicz. The land was purchased in 1980 for the purpose of camping according to Marta, who grew up skipping rocks and eating wild strawberries along the Lake Michigan waters. DCLT Land Program Director Jesse Koyen says the donation of the property is important because it sits within a major migratory bird route and it can have a positive impact on the area’s water quality.
The Door County Land Trust plans on raising $25,000 to help complete the land donation by the Bogdanowicz family and to ensure funds are available for the ongoing upkeep of the shoreline property.
