The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor is stepping up its efforts to take education outside this fall. In addition to its Dragonfly Nature Play and Tiny Trekkers programs, The Ridges Sanctuary introduced two new opportunities for kids ages 7-11. The Ridges Discovery Club takes kids on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons on nature investigations and explorations. Coyote Guides will help kids explore the sanctuary’s unique ecosystems during a Wednesday morning session. Program manager Katie Krouse hopes the programs meet the demand of the community with many schools most unlikely able to go on field trips this year.
Registration for all four of the Ridges’ youth programs is available. The programs run from the beginning of September to the end of October.
