The Village of Egg Harbor received the Governor’s Tourism Stewardship Award.
The Governor’s Tourism Stewardship Award is presented to a business or community that uses and/or promotes sustainable practices. The nomination read, “In 2017, a dedicated group of eco-focused minds came together in Egg Harbor to bring more sustainable practices to the community with an environmental health mission. Recognized as a Green Tier Legacy Community, the Village of Egg Harbor created a task force to turn the conversation into action. New programs include a free bike share system, public seed library, solar energy in the village, and new recycling containers and electric car charging stations.”
Ryan Heise, Egg Harbor Village Administrator accepted the award. “The Village is humbled by the award and honored to be recognized. We have made sustainability part of our core mission and hope it’s contagious. Protection of our natural environment seems to be a cause that everyone can get behind in Door County.”

Sponsored by the Governor’s Council on Tourism, the Governor’s Award recognizes and honors people and organizations that have made a significant impact on Wisconsin’s Travel and Tourism industry.
