Lions, Tigers and Bears at The Ridges

The wooly bear caterpillar matures into a tiger moth.

Antlions and tiger beetles are small but mighty predators. Families and children can learn about these diminutive hunters and other bugs at “Insect-igations.”

Although they’re not related and don’t resemble each other, antlions and tiger beetles both await their prey in earthen lairs. The pits of antlions are found in abundance in The Ridges Sanctuary’s dry, soft sand. Like the antlions, tiger beetles also await their prey in a burrow.

“Insect-igations” will be held August 12 at 10:30 am at The Ridges Marshall Cabin, located at 8288 County Q in Baileys Harbor. No advance registration is required. The cost is $10 per family. For more information visit or call 920.839.2802.
