Protecting Endangered Species Walk
July 22 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
The ancient shorelines, wind-swept dunes, wetlands and forests of the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal are home to a rich diversity of wildlife. Since acquiring this property, the Land Trust has focused on restoring the ecosystem to its natural resilient state, with particular emphasis on the rare and endangered plants that make their home here. Rare flora such as the Pitcher’s dune thistle and dwarf lake iris can be found among the preserve’s distinctive ridge-and-swale landscape. The Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Nature Preserve is the site of the Land Trust’s largest restoration project undertaken to date, and focuses on removing invasive plants from the site, ensuring that threatened species continue to thrive. Join us in exploring this special place. On this walk over easy-to-moderate terrain, you can see and hear the latest news for this and other ongoing Land Trust projects.
