Crossroads at Big Creek will screen the documentary A Time to Choose Sept. 1 at 2 pm. Thanks to the Climate Change Coalition of Door County, Crossroads has screening rights to the film, allowing Crossroads to show – for free – this “in-depth look at the remarkable people working to save our planet.” This hopeful documentary discusses the challenge of climate change, but then introduces world-renowned entrepreneurs, innovators, thought leaders and brave individuals who are working to save the planet.
Crossroads will then host a lecture and garden walk titled “Native Fall Flowers of Door County,” on Sept. 3 at 2 pm. Following a short slide presentation, participants will go out into the garden to see examples of the native plants that make our autumns colorful. The walk is free and open to the public. Meet in the lecture hall of the Collins Learning Center.
During the parking lot expansion, spaces will be available much of the time, but when heavy equipment is present visitors should park at the maintenance building (first drive east of the main entrance) or at the Astronomy Campus parking lot (intersection of Cove Road and Utah Street).
Crossroads at Big Creek is made up of three properties: Ida Bay, The Cove and Big Creek Preserves. The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan Street, is closed Labor Day, but beginning Sept. 7 will be open 2 – 4:30 pm daily and during scheduled programs. Restrooms and trails are always open.
