In celebration of Aldo Leopold Day, Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay is hosting a memorable day of activities this Saturday. Leopold, Wisconsin’s premier ecologist, was a professor at the University of Wisconsin and is considered the “Father of Environmental Ethics”. Crossroads will be hosting a continental breakfast at eight in the morning while volunteer readers present short passages from Leopold’s book “A Sand County Almanac.” Then an inspirational film about Leopold will be screened in the lecture hall. Crossroads Director Coggin Heeringa says the movie and book have inspired many people.
Later in the day, the Aldo Leopold Day Hike will be offered at 4 pm at the Ida Bay Preserve at the entrance between Canal and Cove Road.
