Archaeological digs continue despite rain

Rainy weather is not stopping the yearly archaeological digs at The Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay.  Local school groups taking part in the excavations on The Cover Preserve, however, are having to park off site and walk a little further to the archaeological site.  That's because getting there will mean a muddy walk.  Coggin Heeringa, Director of The Crossroads at Big Creek, says the rain certainly didn't dampen the enthusiasm of students from St. John Bosco Catholic School.




Crossroads is now raising funds to create a driveway/parking complex which will increase the safety and convenience of The Cove for recreational users and for school groups on field trips, but at the same time, protect the environmental and cultural resources of the site.
