On the final two weekends of October, Crossroads at Big Creek will offer a one-credit graduate level class for teachers through the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Educational Outreach program. Class times are Oct. 23, 5:30 – 8 pm, and Oct. 24, 9 am – 3 pm. Called “Teaching Archaeology in the Elementary School,” this class will give teachers hands-on experiences which they can share with their students. Thanks to a special arrangement with the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay, any interested adult may enroll in this class as a non-credit student. Non-credit tuition for this class is $140. See uwgb.edu/educationoutreach for details.
On Oct. 25 at 4 pm, Crossroads will host the lecture “Halloween in the Garden.” The lecture is a whimsical look at the scary creatures of Halloween, which in almost every case, turn out to be beneficial in the garden. This is free and open to the public, and will be held in the Collins Learning Center.
From Oct. 26 to 30, an archaeological dig will be ongoing at Crossroads’ Ida Bay property. Interested members of the community are invited to join in the archaeological dig. To sign up for a day to dig call 920.746.5895 or email [email protected]. The study plots are located near the intersection of Cove Road and Zenith Street.
Crossroads at Big Creek is a preserve dedicated to life long learning in science history and the environment. The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay, is open daily 2 – 4:30 pm and during scheduled events.
