‘Great Lakes Chronicle’ Tells the Story of Coastal Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Historical Society Press helped celebrate last year’s 40th anniversary of the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program with the publication of a book of essays celebrating the state’s coastlines. Called Great Lakes Chronicle:  Essays on Coastal Wisconsin, it includes essays written by a wide variety of contributors – including quite a few Door County residents – between the years 2002 and 2018.

Formed in 1978 under the Federal Coastal Zone Management Act, the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program (WCMP) operates under the wing of the state Department of Administration. Its mission for the 15 counties with Great Lakes coastlines is: “To preserve, protect, develop and where possible, to restore or enhance, the resources of Wisconsin’s coastal area for this and succeeding generations, with governmental coordination and public involvement, giving due consideration to the linkages and impacts to resources of inland areas.”
