Weekend Fun at Crossroads
Crossroads at Big Creek will present three programs this weekend.
The first is a free lecture on starting and maintaining a bluebird trail, to be held March 11, 10 am, in the Collins Learning Center. Charlotte Lukes will describe several types of nest boxes and the species of birds that use them, and she’ll share instructions for completing weekly monitoring and reporting results to the Bluebird Restoration Association of Wisconsin.
The Saturday Science program – set for March 11, 1-3 pm – is about identifying birds by sound. Learners of all ages may stop by the Collins Learning Center’s lower-level classroom for a tutorial on using the free Merlin Sound ID app.
Then on March 11, 3 pm, the Door County Environmental Council and Kewaunee Cares are hosting Tucker Burch, Ph.D., in the Collins Learning Center for a free program on cows and people. His focus is waterborne infectious disease, particularly in rural areas affected by agricultural activity.
The public is invited to the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society’s meeting March 14, 7 pm, at the Stonecipher Astronomy Center, 2200 Utah St. in Sturgeon Bay, where Steve Ransom-Jones will present “The Newcomer’s Guide to Knowing Nebula.” Journey into the past to understand some of the early observations and misconceptions about nebulae. After the meeting, weather permitting, the observatory will be open for live viewing of nebulae.
