The Door County Historical Society will host its yesteryear program “The Ridges Sanctuary” on Sept. 14, 1 pm, in the Vignes School at the Heritage Village at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay.
Anna Foster and George Cobb will present the history of The Ridges Sanctuary – a private, nonprofit nature preserve dedicated to protecting the diversity among the ridges and swales in Baileys Harbor – and share stories of its founders, who believed in preserving the land for future generations. Foster is an environmental interpreter at The Ridges, and Cobb is a dedicated volunteer.

The adult admission fee is $6.50; a donation for youth admission is appreciated. To learn more, contact the Door County Historical Society at 920.421.2332 or [email protected].
