Getting Gardens Ready for Spring

Crossroads at Big Creek is hosting the Master Gardener lecture “Professional Landscaping” on Feb. 25 at 7 pm with Greg Meissner, co-owner of Meissner Landscape, Inc.

The program will provide information about the landscaper-customer design process. It will include discussion about creative plantings of flowers, shrubs and trees that grow well in northeast Wisconsin, and the use of paths, water features, rock walls and other hardscape designs to enhance your outdoor living spaces. The program will also include “before and after” illustrations of landscaping, from high-end large projects through medium size and smaller projects.

On Feb. 22 at 8 pm, the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society will attempt a viewing night at the Astronomy Campus at Crossroads. If the skies are clear – February offers stunning views of the night sky and participants are rarely bothered by mosquitoes.

The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan Street, is open 2 – 4:30 pm daily and during scheduled programs. Trails are free and open to the public; designated ski trails are for skiers only.
