Join the naturalist for about an hour Dec. 30, 1 pm, to visit the Ida Bay Preserve. Meet at the parking lot at the intersection of Canal Road and Buffalo Ridge Trail, 1195 Canal Road, to explore the deep beech-hemlock forest at the preserve’s east end.
Join the pre-school-aged members of the Junior Nature Club for a hike Dec. 31, 10 am. Participants will cross at least three bridges, giving them an overview of several habitats. It’s an easy hike of about a mile, but dress for the weather. Meet at the Collins Learning Center.
Then join the naturalist for a New Year’s Day hike at 2:30 pm to ramble through the non-skiable trails of Crossroads at a gentle pace that’s appropriate for all ages. Meet on the porch of the Collins Learning Center.
Masks are recommended inside buildings at Crossroads (crossroadsatbigcreek.org), 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay.
