The Ridges Sanctuary is a 1,600 acre pristine natural area located in Door County, Wisconsin. Formed in 1937, it's the oldest private nature preserve in the state. The Ridges is designated as a State Natural Area, a National Natural Landmark, an Audubon Important Birding Area, and a Wisconsin Wetland Gem.
The Ridges Sanctuary, Wisconsin's oldest member-based nature preserve celebrates over 72 years of connecting the Door County community with nature! Founded by pioneers in Wisconsin's conservation movement, the 1600-acre wildflower preserve is a Door County treasure, harboring one of the largest concentrations of rare plants in the Midwest.
Year around there are activities and events happening at The Ridges. Some are educational, some are to raise money, and some are just for fun and to give back to the community.
