Last fall I was fortunate to work with my good friend Don Byrne (owner of The Post House in Eau Claire, Wisconsin) on a virtual tour for the Ridges Sanctuary in Bailey's Harbor, Wisconsin. It is an absolutely beautiful place, and happens to be Wisconsin's first land trust (1937). This 30 acre wonder is located along Lake Michigan's shore in Door County.
It was so much fun to work with Don and the Ridges Marketing Director, Drew Richmond, to help shape the story. With Drew's guidance, I wrote the copy for the "panos" and "gallery." Don did the heavy lifting by capturing the beauty of this special place through 360 degree photography and directing drone filming. (The aerial view really shows the ridges and swales that make this habitat unique.)
We were recently notified that this virtual tour received a Communicator Award. The Communicator Awards are sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts.
Be sure to treat yourself to the free Virtual Tour. And don't forget to explore the Ridges' website to learn even more about this amazing place.
