Shivering Sands Creek
The Schwartz Lake at Shivering Sands SNA has a new DNR Land Manager, Joe Henry. He also has the responsibility for 19 other properties in NE Wisconsin, so he is a little overwhelmed at the moment. The Door County Land Trust will only help in trail maintenance. The DNR will make the managerial responsibility. You may see some DNR trucks back on the property this summer. They have a Grant to deal with invasive Phragmities and some Cattails that are threatening to choke Schwartz Lake.
John Swanson 743-4786 or cell: 920-450-4056 has been appointed Land Steward for the property by the DCLT. Tad Greene 818-0248 has agreed to help. If you have any concerns about what is happening to the west of our homes, or see something back there that doesn't seem right, please contact us. We will get that information to the appropriate persons. We will try to keep you updated about any new information.
Take the opportunity to walk the easy path through this interesting collection of many biological niches. It literally changes by the day with lots to discover. This is truly a gem so near to our Door County homes.
