Weekend Activities at Crossroads

Join the Crossroads at Big Creek naturalists for a gathering of the D.O. Club (Discover Outdoors Club): a program through which elementary-school-age students and their families can learn about ecosystems through outdoor discovery. The free program will meet Nov. 19, 10 am, at the Collins Learning Center.

Then settle in for the next lecture in the Quantum Revolution series at 1 pm on Nov. 19, when Tom Minahan of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society (DPAS) will continue exploring the quantum nature of the universe through the theories and experiments that help to describe it. The lecture is also available via Zoom. Visit to reserve your spot.

Celebrate the peninsula’s Dark Skies by attending the DPAS’s next viewing night Nov. 19, 7 pm. Thanks to a generous bequest from the late Dr. Ray Stonecipher, DPAS was able to purchase and install a PlaneWave Instruments CDK400 telescope/mount observatory system in the Leif Everson Observatory. Weather permitting, DPAS members will project amazing, live images from the new telescope on a flat screen in the Stonecipher Astronomy Center, 2200 Utah St. in Sturgeon Bay. If the evening is cloudy or too windy to open the observatory’s dome, they will offer star shows in the inflatable planetarium.
