The Door County Land Trust announces the release of a 78-page book entitled A Guide to the Places We Protect. This guidebook features the 6,500-plus acres that have been protected by the Door County Land Trust.
In addition to detailed descriptions of each Land Trust nature preserve, this four-color guidebook includes photography, interesting cultural and scientific tidbits about Door County, and information on how the Land Trust protects, manages and restores many of Door County’s most important ecological and scenic treasures.
“This book is a celebration of Door County, its vast lakeshore, many islands and wild habitats. It is our hope that the reader will be left with a much greater appreciation for the places, people, plants and animals that call Door County home,” states Laurel Hauser, development director of the Door County Land Trust.
The release of A Guide to the Places We Protect is preceded by this past summer’s release of Hiking Trails of the Door County Land Trust map. Similar in style to a traditional road map, this foldout piece features a detailed road map of Door County showing the locations of Land Trust Nature Preserves equipped with parking areas, nature trails and educational amenities.
A complimentary copy of the Hiking Trails of the Door County Land Trust map may be requested on the Land Trust’s website, http://www.doorcountylandtrust.org.
A Guide to the Places We Protect is available at the Door County Land Trust office (23 N. Fifth Avenue, Sturgeon Bay) for $9.95 or by mail for an additional $4. The guidebooks are also included with every purchase of a membership or gift membership to the Land Trust of $35 or more.
