On Feb. 6, the members of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society (DPAS) will offer a Viewing Night at the Leif Everson Observatory and StarGarden at the Crossroads at Big Creek Astronomy Campus, 2200 Utah Street. Gates will open at 6:30 pm, if skies are clear. Check crossroadsatbigcreek.org or like the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society on Facebook for cancellation information.
On Feb. 9 at 7pm, Crossroads will host the Master Gardeners lecture, “Murder She Planted, Creating the Most Dangerous Garden in Town.” Nancy Santoriello of Santoriello Landscape Maintenance, Sturgeon Bay, will help local gardeners explore the most common dangers in the garden. Santoriello will expose atrocities committed by common criminal botanical families, glimpse into the offensive habits of uninvited garden visitors (not your neighbors), and fall prey to wicked bugs and parasites. This program is free and open to the public.
Crossroads’ Ski For Free program is offered on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1 – 3:30 pm. The program lends, free of charge, an array of ski and snowshoe equipment in sizes to fit age 3 through large adult. When trail conditions permit, go to the Crossroads Maintenance Building and volunteers will fit the equipment, share a few pointers and a trail map.
The Collins Learning Center at Crossroads, open 2 – 4:30 pm daily, is located at 2041 Michigan in Sturgeon Bay. Trails at Crossroads, Big Creek Cove and our Ida Bay Preserve are free and open to the public. When there is snow, walkers are asked to avoid designated ski trails.
