Discovery trail being explored extensively at Ridges Sanctuary

The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor has seen an increase of use of the trails and boardwalk at the nature preserve this summer.  Steve Leonard, the executive director, says with the recent blooming of plants and flowers, families have taken advantage of hikes and programs at the Ridges.  He says the accessibility of the trails makes for a very pleasant experience for the entire family.



The family discovery trail is an opportunity for families to visit a stream, capture butterflies, build forts, and play in the boneyard which is by the sand dune area, according to Leonard.   Besides the trails and nature center, the Ridges Sanctuary is home to the Range Light that is found at the Cana Island Lighthouse which is celebrating the 150th anniversary this year.  The Ridges Sanctuary is located just off Highway 57 north of Baileys Harbor.
