Door County conservation partners including UW-Green Bay were pleased to announce earlier this week that the Door Peninsula Coastal Wetlands complex has been designated a Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention, an intergovernmental treaty for protection of exemplary wetland systems around the world. The site joins Everglades National Park in Florida and Chesapeake Bay Estuary as the only American location. The lands in question encompass more than 22 miles of protected Lake Michigan shoreline and protects some of the most biologically diverse habitats in the region from wet forests, sedge meadows and fens to springs, creeks and interdunal wetlands. UW-Green Bay, of course, manages the Toft Point property near Bailey’s Harbor. Fox-11 TV had a beautifully-done video report.
