‘Water Well’ Presentation at Crossroads at Big Creek
On Sept. 28 at 7 pm at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay, representatives from Peninsula Pride Farms will present a program on their efforts to prevent water pollution.
Don Niles will lead the lecture. He said, “I am a dairy farmer and veterinarian from Kewaunee County. This last year we have started up a group called Peninsula Pride Farms. It is a farmer-led environmental stewardship initiative. Our group includes 43 farms in Kewaunee and southern Door Counties, including large dairies, traditional dairies and crop farms. We are united in our belief that our peninsula can have both clean, safe water as well as a vibrant dairy community.
“We have a dual focus, with attention being given to a surface water program and a ground water program. Our new program, Water Well, is a part of our groundwater program to provide clean water to those with wells that test positive for e.coli.”
There will be time for questions and audience feedback. This program is free and open to the public. The Collins Learning Center at Crossroads, located at 2041 Michigan in Sturgeon Bay, is open 2 to 4:30 pm daily and during scheduled activities. Trails are always open to the public. Pets (on leash and under control) are permitted. For maps and information go to crossroadsatbigcreek.org.
