The Door County Land Trust purchased 421 acres just east of Sister Bay in the fall of 2008 permanently protecting the largest undeveloped tract remaining in northern Door and completing the county’s largest conservation project in over 40 years.  The preserve dedication will honor and thank the landowners, volunteers and Door County Land Trust supporters whose vision, hard work and generosity made the creation of the nature preserve possible.

Lemonade, ice tea, wine and light refreshments will be served.  Following the dedication ceremony, short hikes will be offered for those interested.

The Harold C. Wilson Three Spring Nature Preserve is home to the headwaters of pristine North Bay and to a host of rare and endangered plants and animals.  It was also the site of one of Wisconsin’s first nature centers, the Three Springs Nature Center established by Harold Wilson of Ephraim in the 1950s.

The public is invited to attend.  Please R.S.V.P. by calling the Door County Land Trust at 920.746.1359 or by emailing krice@dcwis.com.  The dedication will be held rain or shine.  Comfortable clothes and good walking shoes are recommended. The Door County Land Trust’s new Harold C. Wilson Three Springs Nature Preserve is located at the end of Three Springs Road off of County Highway ZZ two miles east of Sister Bay.
