Ecological Assessment and Management Plan

Location

Door County, WI

Duration

June 2014-present

Jensen Ecology developed a management plan for a 200-acre private property in Door County, WI. The management plan included a  survey of existing ecological communities on-site, identification of ecological communities by habitat type, notable species found (both flora and fauna) and a comparison of current versus historical conditions for each. The management plan also mapped all of the ecological communities and included recommendations for restoration. Jensen Ecology found and mapped communities ranging from degraded meadow to higher quality wooded wetland on-site. The management plan also recommended removing some old field juniper from the degraded meadow on-site. Large areas of juniper were mowed in winter 2014 with a forestry mower.

Healthy populations of Yellow Lady Slippers were found on-site.
