New Kayak Launch in Sturgeon Bay
A very special celebration of water is scheduled for Sept. 10. The Leadership Door County (LDC) Class of 2018 will dedicate Leadership Landing, a community kayak launch and educational platform with a Kayak “Launch” Party. The community is invited to join LDC members 5-6 pm to celebrate the completion of this project.
Everyone is also invited to join the Friends of Crossroads for the Friends Work Party on Sept. 8 at 10 am. Help chip away at the invasive species around Big Creek. Meet at the Hanson House on Utah Street. No experience necessary but work gloves and water are suggested.
The Door Peninsula Astronomical Society also hosts a “Viewing Night” on Sept. 4 at 8 pm. The Leif Everson Observatory and the StarGarden will open for night sky viewing if it is a clear evening. Viewing begins at dusk. Meet at the Astronomy Campus, 2200 Utah Street.
