Celebrating the Artist

After months of renovating one of Sturgeon Bay’s oldest downtown buildings into a new art space, Door County artist Margaret Lockwood will open the doors to her new gallery for a reception on Friday afternoon.

Earth Week Culmination

Earth Week will end in Door County with more opportunities to do good for Mother Earth. A spring clean up of the grounds at Scandia Village in Sister Bay and a public tree planting at Kangaroo Lake in Baileys Harbor are ways for you to get your hands dirty for a good cause. Another way? A papermaking workshop using old newspapers, cards and construction paper at The Ridges Sanctuary!
