Family Programs Continue at Crossroads

Family programs continue throughout the summer season at Crossroads at Big Creek and Heritage Village at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay.

Heritage Village programs include “Blacksmiths and What’s On Your Bucket List?” on July 19 at 2 pm, and “One Room School” on July 21 at 1:30 pm. For the first program, Write On, Door County partners with the Door County Historical Society to present free family day writing activities. Children, parents, grandparents – everyone is invited to take part in these themed writing activities. Volunteers will help get people started on a story, poem or essay. Gather with schoolchildren, ages 4-18, in a one-room school to learn reading, script, and ciphering during “One Room School.” Meet at Vignes School.

Crossroads programs are held at 10 am in the Collins Learning Center. On July 20 the theme is “Amazing Great Lakes Fish,” and guests can enjoy the Great Lakes exhibit. On July 21 during “Mammals Like Us,” select a Door County animal from the Wildlife Exhibit and go on a nature hike to search for the animal’s habitat.

Crossroads at Big Creek is a preserve welcoming learners of all ages to programs focused on science, history and the environment. The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan in Sturgeon Bay, is open 1:30 – 3:30 pm daily and during scheduled events. For more information visit
