Crossroads at Big Creek is implementing a new staff structure that will allow the organization to grow while taking advantage of its strong history.
Laurel Hauser has taken the role of interim executive director. She was hired in April 2019 as assistant director after many years with the Door County Land Trust and volunteer involvement with numerous Door County nonprofits.
Director Coggin Heeringa has accepted a newly created position as program director and naturalist. She was hired in 2001 as Crossroads’ first director, and until 2017 was its only full-time staff member. Under her leadership, Crossroads grew from 60 acres on one preserve to nearly 200 acres spread over three preserves. Prior to directing Crossroads, Heeringa was an environmental educator and the Newport State Park naturalist.
