Educational Programs at Door County’s Crossroads at Big Creek

Coming up, Crossroads at Big Creek will offer singing, exercise, and lots of good will as 2010 comes to a close.

On December 24 at 2 pm, Crossroads will present the traditional Christmas Card Bird lecture, during which the “bird of the year” will be revealed. The lecture held in the Collins Learning Center.

On December 27 and 28 at 1 pm, A Door County Pioneer Christmas will take place. Learners of all ages can join members of the Door County Historical Society to recreate a simpler time by making decorations, singing, and cutting a tree. The celebration begins in the Greene General Store of the Historical Village.

Another free and family friendly program held at the Collins Learning Center is “The Inner Planets” on December 30 at 2 pm. Everyone is invited to learn about the inner planets through multi-media presentations and activities, including edible models (please call ahead with dietary restrictions).

Crossroads will close the year with a sunset hike on December 31 at 4:15 pm. Clouds permitting, participants will enjoy the final sunset of the year and be back to the parking lot before dark.

The Collins Learning Center is open daily 2 – 5 pm except on Christmas and New Year’s Days. Crossroads trails are open and free of charge.
