Family Programs Begin Again

The presence of Emerald Ash Borer was recently confirmed in Door County. On June 24 at 1 pm, partners from DATCP, DNR, UW-Extension, and the USDA Forest Service Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service will present an informational meeting on the Emerald Ash Borer in the lecture hall of the Collins Learning Center at Crossroads at Big Creek.

Summer programs are underway at both the Collins Learning Center and the Door County Historical Society’s Heritage Village. The June 22 program at the Village will feature a blacksmithing demonstration from 1:30 – 3:30 pm.

During the week, free family nature programs will be offered at the Collins Learning Center Monday through Thursdays and the Historical Society will offer programs on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons at 1:30 pm and blacksmith demonstrations on Thursday afternoons. In the June 23 family program, “Underground Detectives, ” families can find hidden creatures down below the surface.

Explore brachiopods, cephalopods, and corals that once lived in the tropical seas, which became the bedrock of Door County, at the June 24 program – “Fossils Beneath Our Feet.” Both family programs begin at 10 am.

Crossroads is located at 2041 Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay. The Collins Learning Center is open 1:30-3:30 daily and during scheduled activities.
