Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor has expanded hours from 9 am to 5 pm starting today. Although the late spring and late snowfalls in April have delayed the hiking season, Executive Director Steve Leonard is hopeful the last remnants of snow will melt soon and visitors can start enjoying the trails around the nature center Mother Nature intended this time of year.
The Ridges Sanctuary’s Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center which was built three years ago is the first LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified commercial building in Door County. The building also hosts many workshops, classes, and user groups. You can find more information on the Ridges Sanctuary’s hikes and facility rental with this story online.
