As schoolchildren prepare to return to school, the Crossroads at Big Creek prepares for the final events of summer.
The Northeast Wisconsin Audubon Society brings Ann Shebesta, the Monarch Lady, to present an indoor informational program on monarch butterflies on Sept. 4 at 1:30 pm. Children (and adults) will then go outside with nets to capture and tag monarchs. The program is free and open to the public. Meet in the Lecture Hall of the Collins Learning Center.
Also on Sunday, Sept. 4, the Cherryland A’s Model A Club will exhibit several authentic and completely restored Model A Fords in the Historical Village at Crossroads. The Bone Boys, a local trombone ensemble, will provide music while the Door County Historical Society holds its annual Raspberry Ice Cream Social and offers tours of the historical buildings.
The public is encouraged to attend the monthly meeting of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society which will be held this month on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 7 pm. The cultural astronomy program will feature Great Britain, and the lecture “Supernovae” will be presented by Tom Minahan. Refreshments will be served. Meet at the Stonecipher Astronomy Center.
