Crossroads at Big Creek’s family programming continues with a screening of the half-hour documentary Cosmic Collisions on Aug. 25, 2 pm. Created by the American Museum of Natural History and NASA, and narrated by Robert Redford, it explains the many collisions that have resulted in the solar system as we know it. Families may participate in hands-on activities involving cosmic collisions after the film.
The Colors in Space program – with videos and hands-on activities – will be offered Aug. 28, 10 am. For centuries, we have seen the stars in black and white. Now more powerful telescopes can record light that is not in our visible spectrum, so we can see that the cosmos is far more beautiful than we had imagined.
Crossroads is a donor-supported learning center comprising three preserves. The Collins Learning Center, 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay, is open weekdays, 10 am – 4 pm; weekends, 1–4 pm; and during scheduled events. Admission and trail use are free.
