(WFRV) – It’s a journey to ‘The Ridges’ with Local 5 Live Retired Rambler Steve DeBaker.

Today Steve gives our viewers a closer look at a Wisconsin Sanctuary – The Ridges.

In 1937, The Ridges Sanctuary became Wisconsin’s first land trust. For 80 years it has been an integral part of the rich, natural setting of the Baileys Harbor community and the Door County Peninsula. Founded to preserve the original 30-acre parcel, The Ridges has grown thoughtfully and strategically to ensure the protection of the most biologically diverse ecosystem in Wisconsin.
