A “tree-mendous” Family Day is scheduled for May 6, 2 – 3:30 pm, at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay. Crossroads jokes that Earth Day lasts a month there. So does Arbor Day, so they will offer hands-on activities for learners of all ages, rain or shine, to introduce the tremendous value of trees. Families are invited to an afternoon of learning about trees. They’ll move between learning stations and participate in activities intended for all ages. No registration is necessary. Meet at the Collins Learning Center.
Students will plant trees in the southeast corner the Big Creek Preserve; the second phase of planting will take place in the Maki Arboretum. A hike will be held through the Big Creek Preserve on May 6 at 3:30 pm.
Everyone is welcome to these activities. 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.
