Gardening and Landscaping Programs at Crossroads

On April 13 at 2 pm, Wild Ones invites the public to “Nurturing Biodiversity” at Crossroads at Big Creek.

Presenters Dale and Mary Goodner will discuss modeling and structuring their own backyard ecosystem (garden) in order to better fit in Northeastern Wisconsin. The Goodners will report on decades of experience, illustrating the lecture with photographs of Door County flowers and landscapes.

April 16 at 7 pm, the Door County Master Gardeners invite fellow gardeners to “Garden Survival 101 – Small Projects to Fix Big Problems.” This program is designed to help Door County gardeners navigate the treacherous waters of home garden improvement projects. The guest presenter is Jason Feldman of Jason Feldman Landscapes.

April 17 at 2 pm, Door County Invasive Species Team will present “Insect and Disease Issues from 2012.” Linda Williams, a Forest Health Specialist from the Wisconsin DNR, will speak on last year’s weather events, and how they impacted (and will continue to affect) trees and forests. Updates on emerald ash borer and beech bark disease also will be provided.

All these programs are free and open to the public.

The Collins Learning Center at Crossroads, located at 2041 Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay, is open 2 – 4:30 pm daily.
