The Door Peninsula Coastal Wetlands
October 23, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 pmFree
What comes to mind when you hear Door County? Your first thoughts might be of wineries, quaint shops, and bluff overlooks. But you may not be aware that the peninsula also boasts a Wetland of International Importance. The Door Peninsula Coastal Wetlands Ramsar Site is a 11,443-acre wetland complex that occupies a major section of the Lake Michigan shoreline in Door County. Stretching from Newport State Park southward to The Ridges Sanctuary, the site contains several regionally- and globally-significant wetland communities including Great Lakes ridge and swale, northern sedge meadow, calcareous fens, boreal rich fens, northern wet-mesic forest, and Great Lakes alkaline shoreline among others. The Door Peninsula Coastal Wetlands Ramsar Site also houses 15 plant species listed as threatened or endangered by the State of Wisconsin and three plant and animal species listed under the Endangered Species Act. Join Kari Hagenow to explore the “quiet side” of Door County. Learn what makes this site so special, the threats that these wetlands continue to face, and how you can be a good steward while visiting this beautiful and diverse place.
