Crossroads Trail Goes Green

The name has changed to Crossroads Trail Run, but Door County’s first and only trail run, scheduled for 8 am on June 20, has stayed true to the Running Green purpose of “promoting wellness and healthy living, cross-generational recreation and increasing awareness of ‘green’ living in our community.”

Proceeds from the 2K, 5K, and 10K events will help fund the Crossroads Ski for Free winter activities, which they provide in collaboration with the Door County Silent Sports Coalition. For more information or to register, visit

On June 21 at 2 pm, the Peninsula Symphonic Band, under the direction of Paula Eggert, will play on the Village Green of the Door County Historical Society’s Heritage Village at Big Creek. Historical Society volunteers will also hold an old-fashioned ice cream social.

On June 22, enjoy the Great Lakes exhibit and learn about the habitats required for fish. On June 23, select a Door County animal from the Wildlife Exhibit and join the summer educator on a nature hike to search for the animal’s habitat.

Also on June 23 at 1:30 pm, a historical program will be held at the Warren House in the Heritage Village titled “Life on the Warren Farm and Schopf Log Cabin.” Experience farm life with Grandma Warren and explore the Warren House where a family of eight lived.

Family programs begin at 10 am, Monday through Thursday, and are free for all ages. Families should meet in the entry level of the Collins Learning Center. The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan in Sturgeon Bay, is open daily 1:30 – 3:30 pm and during scheduled events.
