DARK SKY PRESERVATION
Through community outreach DCEC is helping to make a change in Door County's Dark Skies...
To advocate for the protection and preservation of our natural resources for all of earths inhabitants and future generations
The Door County Environmental Council, Inc., informally known as 'DCEC', was founded in 1969 and incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1971. Even then, caring citizens could see looming threats to the county's waters, bays, wild shores, bluffs, sand dunes, woodlands, wetlands, farms, orchards and fields. Realizing that restrained commercial development and suburbanization would be disastrous for this beautiful section of the Niagara Escarpment, the group became an active force for preservation and protection.
