The Ridges Sanctuary seeks new executive director

The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor is in the market for a new leader.  That comes after Executive Director Steve Leonard announced he'll be stepping down in August to pursue his masters degree in public health.  During his 14-years overseeing the sanctuary, Leonard helped with the addition of 200-acres to the preserve, the construction of the Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center in Baileys Harbor and a 1/3 mile ADA accessible boardwalk.  As the search for a new leader begins, Board President Tony Fiorato says Leonard set a very high standard for his successor.




Steve Leonard also helped initiate a long-term research project on native orchid populations in and around the Ridges Sanctuary.
