On June 18, Crossroads at Big Creek will hold its 13th annual Crossroads Trail Run and Walk with a restoration twist: All activities and lectures for the week following it will focus on restoring the land.

The trail run will start at 8 am with 2K, 5K and 10K options, and it’s chip timed to allow for staggered starts. Participants will receive a native tree to plant and a race shirt. Registration is $25 per person; sign up in advance or on the day of the event.

The race won’t stop the Habitat Healers from meeting the same day, 9:30-11:30 am, when volunteers of all ages are invited to help with land-restoration efforts. Instruction, equipment, gloves, cookies and lemonade will be provided. Wear clothing and footwear that can get dirty, and meet at the workshop.

Return to Crossroads on June 20, 6:30 pm, for “The History of the Ida Bay Preserve,” held in collaboration with the Door County Heritage Alliance and the Door County Historical Society to celebrate Door County History Days. Ida Bay has been a First Nations seasonal encampment, logging site, quarry, farm, orchard, migrant camp, shop and resort. 

The public is invited to the next meeting of the Beekeepers Club of Door County. Paul Kenyon will present “Swarm Management” at the Collins Learning Center on June 21, 6:30 pm.

On June 23, 6:30 pm, Alfonso Morales will present “How Does the Rebuilding of Notre Dame Cathedral Compare to ‘Restoring’ the Ecology of a Place?” He’ll explore the meaning of the words “restoration,” “resilience” and “reconstruction” during a time of climate change and examine their application with respect to the ecology of a place and the rebuilding of Notre Dame.
