Restoring Nature’s Balance Walk

July 20 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Nature Preserve offers beautiful and serene natural areas, as well as a history rich with human use. Once owned by Wisconsin Public Service, this land was slated for several large-scale power plant projects over the years until the community of Sturgeon Bay came together to preserve it for public use. Now, the vital habitat at the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Nature Preserve is the site of some of the Land Trust’s most dynamic research and restoration efforts. Join us for a walk along the easy-to-moderate terrain of the preserve’s shoreline, and learn about the ways that the Land Trust is helping to restore nature’s balance along the canal, from large-scale invasive plant removal, to wildlife population surveys, to monitoring the endangered plants that grow in this unique coastal landscape.
