The Door County Master Gardeners Association announces its sixth free public program, “Green Initiatives at Crossroads,” will be held March 14, 7 pm, at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay. Presenters are Coggin Heeringa and Rich Propsom.
For the last 15 years, Crossroads has been offering programs on “going green,” but realized that if they really believed in living in an environmentally responsible way, they would have to demonstrate that it can be done. This program will cover their green initiatives ranging from safe lawns and pollinator-friendly landscaping to the use of alternative energy and the environmentally responsible parking lot expansion. Coggin Heeringa, Crossroads director, will discuss the new Bird and Butterfly Garden and Rich Propsom, facilities and grounds manager, will explain the parking lot plans and other initiatives.
