The Ridges Will Break Ground on Earth Day

Earth Day will be even more memorable in 2014 as the Ridges Sanctuary has chosen the annual observance as the day for its groundbreaking ceremony for a new interpretive center in Baileys Harbor. The board of directors & staff at the Ridges took the initial steps to secure the future of Wisconsin’s first land trust six years ago. The Cook-Albert Fuller Center is the outgrowth of the level of support received from individuals, foundations & the community during the organization’s capital campaign. Once completed, the new facility will inspire & encourage conservation by providing a place where residents, visitors & community groups can interact & better understand the value of the landscape & its watershed. Architects from Boldt Company designed the 7,400 square foot building scheduled to open in 2015. The groundbreaking ceremony, from 10AM to 11AM, will be held on Tuesday, April 22nd, at the site of the new interpretive center, 8166 Highway 57 in Baileys Harbor.
