Crossroads Covers Fossils, Seasons, Halloween and Stars

Crossroads at Big Creek will continue to offer educational programming throughout the fall. A few of the upcoming highlights include insight into the geologic history of this unique peninsula, the seasonal changes of Door County, and a few creatures of Halloween lore.

Crossroads’ program set for Friday, October 30, will focus on the “Fossils of Door County.” This look at the geologic history of the Door Peninsula is one of the learning center’s “cross-generational” programs, in which one adult and one youth (ages 7 – 13) can learn together. The class and materials are free, but pre-registration is required and space is limited.

On Saturday, October 31 everyone is invited to the Collins Learning center to learn about owls and bats. Films, demonstrations, and games will help participants understand these misunderstood Halloween creatures.

Then, on Sunday, November 1 at 4 pm, a slide program with Roy and Charlotte Lukes will cover the “Seasons of Door County.” This presentation is part of the Wild Ones’ programming, and the public is invited to attend.

The monthly meeting of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society will take place on Tuesday, November 3 at 7 pm. Following a short meeting, Dr. John Beck will present the illustrated lecture:  “Nebulae and the Lifetime of Stars.” There is no charge and refreshments will be served.

Crossroads is an educational preserve, welcoming visitors of all ages to activities and events focused on science, history and the environment. The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan Street (County TT) in Sturgeon Bay, is open 2 – 5 pm daily. For more information about Crossroads and their programs, call 920.746.5895.
