Be Part of World Water Day at Crossroads

Start your weekend with Saturday Science on March 18, 1-4 pm, at Crossroads at Big Creek. This family science program will feature “green in the water” with videos, hand-on activities and a make-and-take craft. Stop by the upper level of the Collins Learning Center to participate.

A naturalist-led hike will take place March 19, 2 pm, when participants will visit places where groundwater seeps into the waters of Big Creek. Meet at the kiosk in the Collins Learning Center’s parking lot.

The Door County Beekeepers Club will meet March 21, 6:30 pm, in the lecture hall of the Collins Learning Center. The public is invited to hear Max Martin’s discussion about conducting a necropsy on a winter-dead beehive and suggestions for evaluating old hive frames.

Preschoolers in the Junior Nature Club and their companions will meet Wednesday, March 22, 10 am, to take a walk to the Cedar Crossing Bridge, weather permitting. The group will meet inside the Collins Learning Center if there’s inclement weather. 

Crossroads is also presenting three discussions March 22 – World Water Day – pertaining to water.

At 1:30 pm, Greg Kleinheinz of the Environmental Research and Innovation Center at UW-Oshkosh will discuss, via a video lecture, why healthy water is essential. At 2:30 pm, Joel Brammeier of the Alliance for the Great Lakes will offer an overview of what makes the Great Lakes special and describe some of the problems facing the lakes, also via a video lecture. At 3:30 pm, Brammeier and author and environmental journalist Dan Egan will discuss Egan’s book The Death and Life of the Great Lakes during a recorded program.

Viewings of all three video/recorded lectures will be held in the Collins Learning Center’s lecture hall at Crossroads at Big Creek (, 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay.
