CANCELLED – Schmidtke Conservation Easement Hike in Southern Door
August 28 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
CANCELLED – Unfortunately, due to public health concerns we have cancelled this hike. Sign up for emails to hear about future hikes and events.
Come discover DCLT’s newest conservation easement in Southern Door, the 20-acre Schmidtke easement. In 2019, bothers Erich and Peter Schmidtke protected their beautiful 20-acre property from future development. Near the Gardner Swamp State Wildlife Area and Brussels Hill and less than 325 feet from Green Bay, their easement is protecting forest, meadow and streams providing important habitat for migratory birds, monarch and fish along the shores of Green Bay. The brothers hope their conservation easement will inspire others in the area to join the efforts. Hike will be moderate, uneven ground at times, wear good hiking shoes, and bring sunscreen, hat, bugspray and water.
Free • Open to members only
Hike Leader: Drew Reinke and Erich Schmidtke
Co-Leaders: Jan Wrede, Gretchen Schmelzer, Rob Watson
