In May Crossroads at Big Creek offers a number of Earth Day events starting with a few hikes and educational presentations this week.
On May 7 at 7 pm, a Crossroads naturalist will lead “Evening at Big Creek,” an evening ramble in the Big Creek preserve. Hikers listen for sounds of spring and visit the various wildlife areas. Hikers should meet at the Collins Learning Center.
On May 8 at 7 pm, Charlotte Lukes attempts for the third time to present two spring-themed lectures. “Wild Orchids of Door County: A Tribute to Roy Lukes,” is a tribute to Lukes’ late husband, showing the chronological blooming of many species that he photographed during a period of more than 40 years. “Spring in Door County” highlights wildflowers, birds, animals, butterflies and mushrooms of the spring season.
