A Candlelight Ski and Snowshoe at Crossroads at Big Creek will kick off Destination Sturgeon Bay’s Fire and Ice Weekend (conditions permitting) Feb. 18, 6-8 pm.
During the event, Crossroads Meadow Trail will be lined with luminaries to provide a magical, memorable winter experience. A candlelight hike will be offered if there’s not enough snow to ski. Participants may provide their own equipment or borrow Crossroads’ equipment on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Junior Nature Club will meet Feb. 11, 10-11 am. This activity is for preschool children, their caregivers, siblings and other interested people. This week’s topic will be sliding, with time for unstructured play. All activities take place outside, so bundle up.
The Door County Beekeepers Club invites the public to its next meeting on Feb. 15, 6:30 pm, at Crossroads, where Coggin Heeringa will present “Planting for Pollinators.” She’ll focus on improving plant biodiversity to support pollinating insects.
The Ski for Free program continues every Saturday, 9:30 am – 3:30 pm, and Sunday, 12:30-3:30 pm, weather permitting. Friends of Crossroads and volunteers from Door County Silent Sports help participants find the correct sizes of skis, boots, poles, snowshoes and kicksleds.
