The Ridges Sanctuary Master Plan

The Ridges Sanctuary is excited to announce a new master planning initiative to develop a 20-year vision for the Sanctuary that incorporates the potential for preservation and growth of the Sanctuary, along with the adjacent Ridges Inn property which we are currently under contract to purchase. We are partnering with SmithGroup, a Madison, WI-based design firm in partnership with PROS Consulting. Between now and May of 2023, we will use this webpage to provide updates, introduce new ideas, promote public engagement, and continuously provide information of how you can get involved.

Upcoming Engagement Opportunities!
