Family outings at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay are special. When youngsters are along, it takes a little extra time to cover a trail, but the kids always survive and usually notice things that adults might miss.
Families are invited to take park in a hike of the evergreen forest Dec. 9 at 3 pm. Hikers of all ages are welcome on this gentle ramble through Big Creek Preserve. If youngsters are along, it might take a little extra time, but hikers will make it back before dark. The hike is free and open to the public. Hikers should meet at the Collins Learning Center.
Thanks to the Climate Change Coalition of Door County, Crossroads has screening rights for the film, Chasing Ice. The film will be screened Dec. 8, 2 pm. It documents the acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog’s assignment for the National Geographic to travel to the Arctic to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. This presentation is free and open to the public. Meet in the lecture hall of the Collins Learning Center.
Crossroads at Big Creek is a learning center made up of The Cove, Big Creek and Ida Bay preserves. Trails are always open. The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan Street, is open 2 – 4 pm daily and during scheduled events.
