Ridges Sponsors Family Nature Discovery Night

The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor began its Thursday evening lecture series on July 2 with “Family Nature Discovery Night.” Family Discovery Night is a great time for parents and children (or grandparents and grandchildren) to investigate and learn about nature. Some of the activities planned include:  pond critter identification, giant bubble blowing, fish printing, getting to know monarch caterpillars, and simple nature crafts and snacks.

Thursday presentations are sponsored by The Ridges Sanctuary and will be held through August 6 at the Baileys Harbor Town Hall at 7 pm. All programs are open to the public.

Upcoming programs include:  “Wisconsin’s Bats” on July 9 with Scott Craven; “Everybody Lives Downstream from Someone Else” on July 16 with Brian Forest; “Nature Photography” on July 23 with Roy Lukes; “My Kind of County” on July 30 with John Fraser Hart; and “Algae:  Not Just Green Stinky Stuff” on August 6 with Shana Ederer.
