Volunteering on the Land


We’re Your Land Trust

The Door County Land Trust Stew Crew is the heart and soul of the work we do to protect Door County’s exceptional lands and waters forever. Volunteers maintain trails and preserve infrastructure, monitor and conduct biological inventories, eradicate invasive species, and obtain a sense of place by being a part of an energetic and dynamic crew working to achieve common goals.

The beauty of stewardship is that we not only get to see our natural world first hand, but we are bringing back what once was. We are managing lands while thinking about the past for the future, to establish a balanced and functioning system.
