In mid-October, John and Xan Fischer of Sturgeon Bay and Boulder, Colorado, put forth a challenge to the public to match their $350,000 gift to the Door County Land Trust by Dec. 15. The current response to the match is $160,000, which includes memberships and general donations.
The funds from the Fischer Challenge will enable the Door County Land Trust to continue its mission of preserving lands and restoring wildlife habitat. They will also provide for expenses related to 2023 land-protection projects, which include a new natural area in Southern Door, several new conservation easements and the first phases of projects to be completed in 2024 and beyond.
