Explore Ground and Sky at Ridges

Want to experience an archaeological dig? Then stop by Crossroads at Big Creek on Sept. 23, 10 am – 3 pm, for its Fall Archaeological Experience, when visitors can watch and talk with the archaeologists and perhaps even participate in a dig. No reservations are required. The dig takes place at The Cove Estuary Preserve, with parking available at 817 S. 20th Place.

Volunteers of all ages are invited to help with the Habitat Healers’ land-restoration efforts Sept. 24, 9:30-11:30 am. Instruction, equipment, gloves, cookies and lemonade are all provided. Wear clothing that can get dirty and wet.

Then be at the Astronomy Campus on Sept. 24, 3-9 pm, for Astronomy Day and the dedication of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society’s new telescope. During daylight hours, visitors can look through the special solar telescope (which has safety filters), see planetarium shows, tour the observatory and enjoy kids’ programs. The new telescope will be dedicated at 8 pm, followed by – fingers crossed – amazing views of clear skies (or a presentation of images taken with the new telescope).

Visit to find more details about these and other events at Crossroads at Big Creek, 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay.
