Door County Land Trust Acquisition Protects Water Quality and Wildlife

Door County Land Trust acquired 10 acres in the Town of Liberty Grove, which is about 1.5 miles from the Three Springs Nature Preserve in Sister Bay already protected by the land trust.

“This land’s ecological significance is high,” said Land Program Director Jesse Koyen. “Protection of this property furthers the Land Trust’s goal of protecting water quality throughout Door County.”

The property features headwaters and wetlands, plus mature maple forests, a drumlin, and a field that will be restored to natural prairie.

The property is open to the public, but Door County Land Trust has no plans to add amenities or parking.

The purchase of this property was funded in part by the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program, as well as the Fox Valley and Green Bay Natural Resources Trustees.
