Interested in volunteering on the land?
Join a Door Stewardship Alliance Work Party!
The Door Stewardship Alliance (also known as DSA) was born in
2001 when the Door County Land Trust and The Nature Conservancy joined together
to create a volunteer land management group to work at permanently protected
properties on the Door Peninsula of Wisconsin. Through pooling of volunteers
and equipment, both organizations are able to more effectively protect and
manage their preserves while engaging a larger audience than one organization
alone may reach.
