Ridges restructures, names new leaders

The departure of Executive Director Mike Reed is allowing The Ridges Sanctuary to take a different look at its leadership roles.


The Ridges Sanctuary announced on Thursday it has appointed Andrew Gill as its Executive Director and Katie Krouse as its Director of Operations. Gill was the Executive Director of the Pease Park Conservancy in Austin, Texas before coming to Door County. He has since opened a business in Baileys Harbor, became a founding member of the non-profit Horseshoe Bay Farms, Inc. and the Baileys Harbor Community Association.


Krouse has worked at The Ridges Sanctuary the last six coordinating programs for youth and adults. She is also credited with developing the procedures that are allowing people to safely visit The Ridges Sanctuary during the pandemic. Board of Directors President Linda Brooks says dividing the roles among Gill and Krouse should allow both to flourish.

The Ridges Sanctuary is planning for the return of its summer camps for area youth and the expansion of its popular Festival of Nature.
