Become a Ski/Snowshoe Volunteer

The Master Gardeners seminar at Crossroads at Big Creek on Nov. 8 is titled “What’s Hardy? A “Perennial” Question.” The speaker, Nancy Nedveck, is the co-owner of The Flower Factory in Stoughton, Wisconsin.

The morning session will explore Door County’s unique growing conditions and focus on the use of hardy grasses as part of a landscaping plan. After lunch, Nedveck will discuss the perennials most likely to do well in Zone 5. Preregistration and payment are required and space is limited. The cost of the program is $15, which includes the box lunch. Anyone wishing to attend must contact Bill or Sarah Freyman at 920.868.1749 or [email protected].

To meet the needs of winter sports enthusiasts, Crossroads, in collaboration with Door County Silent Sports, will conduct volunteer training for this winter’s ski and snowshoe loan program on Nov. 9, 1 – 2 pm, at the Collins Learning Center. Volunteers will learn how to assist new skiers who come to Crossroads borrowing skis and snowshoes for use on Crossroad’s five-mile trail system. Register at 920.746.5895.

Potential and loyal Crossroads volunteers should plan to attend the Friends of Crossroads meeting on Nov. 11 at 6 pm at the Collins Learning Center. The group will prepare for winter and holiday activities.

The Collins Learning Center at Crossroads, located at 2041 Michigan in Sturgeon Bay, is open 2 – 4:30 pm daily and during scheduled activities.
