The community is invited to join the Crossroads at Big Creek Board of Directors in a ribbon cutting ceremony to dedicate their Bird and Butterfly Garden and parking lot expansion Sept. 23 at 1 pm. The dedication takes place during the Door County Sustainability Fair 2017. Neither effort is fully complete, but since both projects were designed to be sustainable, the fair was the most appropriate time to dedicate and showcase them.
The nonprofit group Sustain Door, Inc. organizes the Sustainability Fair. From 10 am to 4 pm, community members and Door County visitors are invited to enjoy exhibits, demonstrations, children’s activities, local food, films and music in the Collins Learning Center, in the gardens and around the newly upgraded parking lot.
The 1 pm Crossroads ribbon cutting will be a brief outdoor ceremony in the garden just east of the Collins Learning Center. In case of rain, activities will be moved into the learning center, but the fair will go on.
Crossroads at Big Creek is made up of three properties: Ida Bay, The Cove, and the Big Creek Preserves. The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay, is open 2 – 4:30 pm daily and during scheduled programs. Restrooms and trails are always open.
