Sales of the Door County State Parks Poster Series from the Peninsula Pulse have generated $5,000 for open space preservation. Pulse founder and publisher David Eliot presented a check for the Open Spaces Fund at the Door County Community Foundation in December. Twenty percent of the revenue from each poster sold is designated for the fund.
The posters were designed by Pulse Artistic Director Ryan Miller for the 2017 Sustainability Issue of the Peninsula Pulse. The posters highlight an iconic image from each of Door County’s five state parks – Potawatomi Tower, Eagle Bluff Light at Peninsula, the Thordarson Boathouse on Rock Island, the sand beach at Whitefish Dunes, and the rugged natural shoreline of Newport.
This year’s Sustainability Issue focused on the future of the parks and the people dedicating their time and energy to make sure they remain vital for future generations.
“We created the Sustainability Issue 11 years ago to focus the community’s attention on the importance of smart development and preserving the natural environment that is so important to us,” Eliot said. “With these posters we’re able to make a direct contribution to further that cause.”
The Open Spaces Fund will contribute to the preservation of Door County’s Open Spaces including projects that enhance access to parks and preserves. The posters are available at DoorCountyPulse.com/shop and at the offices of the Peninsula Pulse in Baileys Harbor. To order posters in time for Christmas delivery place your order by Dec. 21.
