Crossroads at Big Creek is offering a number of educational opportunities in early September. “It’s Because of the Glaciers,” is a history lecture scheduled for 2 pm on Sept. 7. This PowerPoint presentation explores how Ice Age glaciers determined Door County’s history. The program is free and open to the public.
On Sept. 10, the nature hike, “Follow the Compass Plant,” will be held at 4:30 pm, and highlights fall prairie plants. Also, at 6:30 pm, visitors are welcome to the Friends of Crossroads meeting, where they will discuss and plan fall projects.
On Sept. 12 at 7 pm, the Door County Environmental Council presents We The Last Mountain, a powerful documentary featuring Robert Kennedy Jr. as the battle wages to save the mountains of Appalachia from destruction for corporate profit. This film shows the personal struggles behind protecting West Virginia’s mountains and valleys and the impact on the local community. This program is free and open to the public.
Also, Crossroads recently announced they met their fundraising goal of raising enough funds to complete a Council Ring/Outdoor Classroom Project this fall.
The Collins Learning Center is open daily, 2 – 4:30 pm. Crossroads is located at 2041 Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay. For more information visit http://www.crossroadsatbigcreek.org.
