Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
That age-old question may not be answered, but Crossroads at Big Creek will be celebrating all things eggs (and chickens) April 16 with three egg-focused programs.
The family favorite EGGStravaganza will kick off the lineup at 10 am, when learners will crack, break, throw and drop eggs out the window from the upper level of the Collins Learning Center. Each family will also dissect an egg. Meet at the Collins Learning Center.
Saturday Science – a family program intended for school-aged students – will meet at 2 pm, when participants will be seeing demonstrations and doing EGGSperiments. Meet in the Collins Learning Center’s lab.
The documentary Mad City Chickens – a feature-length documentary about urban backyard chickens – will be screened at 3:30 pm. “Mad City” refers to Madison, where some citizens are involved in sustainably raising chickens.
Habitat Healers will also return to Crossroads on April 16, 9:30-11:30 am. Volunteers of all ages are invited to help with land-restoration efforts. Equipment, gloves, cookies and lemonade will be provided. Wear clothing that can get dirty and appropriate footwear. Meet at the workshop.
The Door County Beekeepers Club will meet in the Collins Learning Center’s lecture hall April 19, 6:30 pm, for a free program that’s open to the public.
The Junior Nature Club will meet next on April 20, 10 am, to visit the Hidden Classroom. This activity is intended for preschool children and their caregivers, but siblings and others are welcome. Meet on the porch of the Collins Learning Center.
Masks are recommended inside buildings at Crossroads at Big Creek (crossroadsatbigcreek.org), 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay.
