Get Out of Hibernation Mode at The Ridges

This challenging winter has put a lot of us in hibernation mode, but the March moon signals that spring is near. It’s the perfect time to break out of your winter doldrums and renew mind, body and spirit. At The Ridges in Baileys Harbor you can enjoy a brisk moonlight hike on March 14 from 7 – 8:30 pm.

A Ridges naturalist will guide you along winding Sanctuary trails, sharing fun facts about phases of the moon, night animals and constellations. After hiking, enjoy hot beverages in the warmth of the Nature Center or gather round the glow of a blazing campfire.

In the East, this moon is known as the Full Worm Moon because the ground begins to soften and earthworms reappear, inviting robins to return. In other areas, like ours, it’s called the Sap Moon as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins. So take heart, and think thaw!

Hikers should meet at The Ridges Nature Center, 8288 Hwy Q in Baileys Harbor. Program fees are $10 per adult for Ridges members, $13 per adult for the general public, and $5 for children. Space is limited and advance registration is requested. Contact The Ridges at 920.839.2802 or [email protected] to reserve a spot.
