Named for the crescent-shaped sandy ridges and swales formed by post-glacial fluctuating Lake Michigan lake levels, The Ridges is home to the federally-threatened dwarf lake iris (Iris lacustris) and federally-endangered Hine's emerald dragonfly (Somatochlora hineana). Twenty-five species of orchid are documented here. Be certain to pack your camera. Brian Forest from The Ridges Sanctuary will discuss the ongoing orchid restoration efforts at 10:50am.
Following a catered lunch, at 1:00pm a tour of The Ridges Sanctuary will be led by Brian Forest.
