The Ridges is named for its distinctive topography – a series of 30 ridges and swales formed by the movement of Lake Michigan over the past 1100 years. Today, The Ridges owns 1,600 acres in and around Baileys Harbor. In recognition of its rich diversity, The Ridges Sanctuary has been designated as a Wisconsin State Natural Area, a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service, a National Audubon Important Bird Area and a Wisconsin Wetland Gem. Our campus is comprised of five distinct areas: Hidden Brook, The Sanctuary, the Family Discovery Trail (Closed during Winter), Appel’s Bluff (also closed during winter) and Logan Creek. All areas with the exception of Logan Creek are located in Baileys Harbor, WI. The Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center, exhibits, and Nature Store are open daily 9:00 – 5:00 (May – October) and Monday – Saturday 10:00 – 4:00 (November –April).
