How Much Land is Preserved in Door County?

We asked the Door County Planning Department to map out this image of preserved land in the county. Check it out and see just how much of the county is actually preserved from development.

Not quite as much preserved land as you thought, right?

Here’s how the map breaks down: blue space is federally-owned, orange is state-owned, purple is municipally-owned and red is county-owned. Shades of green and blue show privately owned preserved land that belongs to Crossroads at Big Creek, the Door County Land Trust, The Ridges Sanctuary and the Nature Conservancy.
