Join Crossroads at Big Creek this week for one of its many nature-themed programs.

Musicians Tad Greene and David LeFevre, along with puppeteer and storyteller Nancy Hawkins, will present songs and stories during Words in the Woods on July 29, 7-8 pm, in the outdoor amphitheater. Then stay for s’mores at the council ring campfire.

Habitat Healers will meet July 30, 9:30-11:30 am, when all are welcome to help with land-restoration efforts. Instruction, equipment, gloves, cookies and lemonade are provided. Wear clothes and shoes that can get dirty.

Words in the Woods

Join summer educator Joan Wilkie on Aug. 1, 10 am, to discover how animals from an ancient sea transformed into the fossils that are still found at Crossroads today. The free program will meet at the Collins Learning Center. 

Then return Aug. 2, 10 am, to join Wilkie in Crossroads’ gardens, meadows and fields to search for butterflies, and she’ll give a program about Great Lakes fisheries Aug. 3, 10 am, at the Collins Learning Center.
