Hoping for Snow at Crossroads

Crossroads at Big Creek continues its winter programming with preserve and community events.

On Jan. 4, 2 pm, Crossroads presents the film Cosmic Collisions. Created by the American Museum of Natural History and NASA, and narrated by Robert Redford, it explains the many collisions that have resulted in our solar system.

Crossroads presents two programs on Jan. 5: Ski for Free (9:30 am – 3:30 pm) and the family program “Are We Alone?” (10 am). The Ski for Free program lends, free of charge, an array of ski and snowshoe equipment. When trail conditions permit, go to the Crossroads maintenance building, and volunteers will fit you with equipment. Ski for Free is also available on Jan. 6, 1-3:30 pm.

Most everyone has wondered whether life exists in space. The program “Are We Alone?” will explore that question, although there won’t be an answer given. The program is appropriate for ages eight and older and will be held in the lab of the Collins Learning Center.

The Climate Change Coalition of Door County and the League of Women Voters will present a screening of the documentary Saving Snow on Jan. 9, 7 pm. Filmed in Wisconsin in 2017, the movie documents how climate change is transforming winter recreation and highlights ways in which individuals, organizations and communities are coming to terms with these changes. The screening will be held in the lecture hall.

The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay, is open 2-4:30 pm daily and during scheduled activities.
