Crossroads Continues to Celebrate 2017 Earth Week

Celebrations continue at Crossroads at Big Creek during Celebrate Earth Week 2017. In collaboration with the Climate Change Coalition of Door County, the Niagara Escarpment Resource Network, the Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Crossroads will celebrate both Arbor Day and the Niagara Escarpment.

Naturally, Crossroads will plant trees on Arbor Day, and they will host a free public screening of the new documentary, The Great Ledge.

On April 28 at 4 pm, go on an Arbor Day Hike. Celebrate this “day of trees” with a gentle ramble to some of the tree plantations at Crossroads, plus a visit to their own riparian cedar forest along Big Creek. Trails may be wet. The hike is free and open to the public; hikers should meet at the Collins Learning Center.

The screening of The Great Ledge is set for April 29 at 6:30 pm. The program begins with Green Music prelude, followed by the film about the Niagara Escarpment and an after-the-show Q&A and discussion. The film was created by Dan Larson and it focuses on the stories of the Niagara Escarpment.

On May 3 at 6:30 pm, the lecture “Citizen Action to Protect the Waters of Northeast Wisconsin” will be held at Crossroads. Dean Hoegger, president of the Clean Water Action Council of Northeast Wisconsin, will give an update on the state of our ground and surface waters.

Crossroads at Big Creek is a donor-supported facility made up of the Big Creek, The Cove, and the Ida Bay preserves. The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay, is open 2-4 pm daily and during scheduled activities. Trails in all preserves are open 24/7 free of charge.
