Ridges Sanctuary presents at Crossroads Saturday

Class was in session at the old schoolhouse on the historical grounds of Crossroads at Big Creek Saturday afternoon. Environmental Interpreter Anna Foster and George Cobb talked about the history of the Ridges, located on State Highway 57 in Baileys Harbor. The location is unique, facing south with cool winds blowing off of Lake Michigan. The Ridges is routinely 10-15 degrees cooler than other places just miles away making  the area a boreal forest, usually found only in the northern edges of the state and up into Canada. That provides a unique ecosystem which is a haven for orchids and endangered plants.



Hiking is available year-round and educational opportunities are provided to adults and children. Foster encourages anyone interested in the Ridges to stop by the Nature Center.
