The Ridges Sanctuary

Preservation, Education, and Research

Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center

Built in 2015, the Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center is located on State Hwy 57 in Baileys Harbor, WI. The Nature Center provides a visible public entrance to the Sanctuary. It features a full exhibit, focusing on the cultural and natural history of The Ridges and is the first LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design ) certified commercial building in Door County.  It received its LEED Gold certification in 2017.

The building also hosts various workshops, education classes, and user groups. Most importantly, as our founders envisioned, it is the place for people of all ages – volunteers, members, residents, businesses, visitors and community leaders alike – to gather in support of land protection, education, outreach and research.
