The first 440 Door County residents may pick up free well testing kits supplied through a grant from Healthy Water Door County on June 12, 4 – 7 pm, at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay. Pick-up will also be held June 13, 9 am – 12 pm. A representative from the Environmental Research and Innovation Center (ERIC) of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh will be on hand to answer questions and explain well monitoring procedures.
Family programs have started at Crossroads for the season. On June 15, enjoy Crossroads’ Great Lakes Exhibit and learn about the habitats required of fish under the waves. On June 16, select a Door County animal from the Wildlife Exhibit, and then join the summer educator on a nature hike to search for the animal’s habitat. On June 17, examine the habitat of the different flowers that grow at Crossroads in the summer and learn how they help feed the wildlife. These family programs are free for all ages, and families should meet in the entry level of the Collins Learning Center at 10 am.
Also on June 17 at 1:30 pm, Spectrum Fest will be held at Crossroads. Stations targeted at both young children and grade school-aged learners will help young people learn about the many aspects of the electromagnetic spectrum.
