Door County’s Crossroads Hosts Various Programs

Crossroads at Big Creek will continue offering programming and educational opportunities throughout April.

Sunday, April 17 and Monday, April 18 at 1 pm a naturalist will host a free Big Creek Observation Hike. Join a citizen science effort to determine what conditions trigger the annual sucker run. After a short slide show, the group will hike to Big Creek for observations.

Saturday, April 23 at 10 am the Crossroads will host a cross-generation program entitled “Introduction to the Night Sky,” sponsored by the Door County Community Foundation. Designed for one adult and one youth (age 7-12) to learn together, this planetarium show will help beginners learn their way around the spring and summer sky. Free sky maps will be provided for participants. Pre-registration is required. Class size is limited to six pairs of learners for this free event.

At 2 pm, families are invited to attend “EGG-stravaganza” to celebrate the incredible edible egg. Participants will break eggs, dissect eggs, roll eggs, toss eggs and even drop eggs from the upper level windows of the Collins Learning Center, all in an effort to gain appreciation for eggs and birds. This annual event is free.

Crossroads is located at 2041 Michigan Street, Sturgeon Bay. For more information call 920.746.5895 or visit
