Shoreline at the Edge:
Door County’s Lakeside Forests and Wetlands
Paul Lurie’s aerial photographs show the transition from forest to farm field, from wilderness to development. And, upon closer look, they show where Door County’s dark evergreen conifer boreal forests hug the cooler climate areas of the shoreline.
Lurie’s images beg the question of how to protect the uniqueness of Door County as we lose wilderness habitat to development and as our boreal forests are visibly transitioning in response to climate change. Former executive director of The Ridges Sanctuary, Steve Leonard, and Door County Land Trust’s director of charitable giving, Cinnamon Rossman, co-authored the narrative and captions that accompany Paul Lurie’s photographs. Their narration covers a history that spans from geologic times to present, adding ecological and scientific facts throughout.
