After school program goes virtual

Environmental Interpreter Anna Foster says the county’s spike in COVID-19 activity has changed how The Ridges is conducting its after school programming.


She says that the lessons remain popular, and there are plenty of outdoor activities at the sanctuary that can help replace the hands-on learning experience. The organization has recently added a new trail at the Logan Creek Preserve. The half-mile path breaks off from the Lake Trail Loop to follow the creek north. A Facebook post from The Ridges touts it as challenging.

The night hikes are also enjoying popularity. Foster says the groups have already developed a close relationship with some of the sanctuary’s nocturnal creatures. She has had a flying squirrel land on her twice. The Ridges is planning a special holiday edition on Halloween proper and is working on doing holiday hikes as well.
