This time of year, when the days are getting shorter and the weather keeps us cooped up inside, some people may suffer from increased stress. To encourage people to get outside, Crossroads at Big Creek has scheduled naturalist-led health hikes during the next two weeks.
On Nov. 17 and 19, 9 am, join the naturalist on a one-hour, moderately brisk walk through the late autumn woods to get the benefits of outdoor exercise, morning light and fellowship. Meet at the Collins Learning Center.
The next Health Hike is to The Cove on Nov. 18, 1 pm. Join the naturalist for a one-hour, moderately brisk walk to the dock at The Cove Preserve. Meet at the Astronomy Campus.
The Health Hike on Nov. 20, 9 am, is a moderately brisk walk through Ida Bay. Meet at the parking lot at the intersection of Canal Road and Buffalo Ridge Trail Road.
Nov. 16 features a Friday Film at 2 pm. Chasing Ice documents the acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog as he travels to the Arctic to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Meet in the lecture hall of the Collins Learning Center.
On Nov. 21 at 2 pm, Crossroads will screen Wisconsin Hometown Stories: Door County by Wisconsin Public Television. Following the program, several vignettes which were filmed, but not included in the televised special, will be shown. Meet in the lecture hall.
The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay, is open 2-4:30 pm daily, but will be closed Nov. 22 and 23 for Thanksgiving.
