The Ridges Sanctuary

Preservation, Education, and Research


Today, the mission of The Ridges is to protect the Sanctuary and inspire stewardship of natural areas through programs of education, outreach and research. We believe we will be the center for Environmental Stewardship. Every day, the staff, members, volunteers and visitors ensure the mission is incorporated in all we do.

Land Protection: We must protect The Ridges lands, flora and fauna from the harmful impacts of human activity, invasive species, and other threats that may arise.


Education: We must reach out to all and be a resource to help educate youth and adults in the importance of stewardship and provide opportunities for participation and personal responsibility.


Research: We must encourage, promote and facilitate research critical to this diverse environment and other relevant Door County habitats.
