Crossroads at Big Creek expecting more family outings

A nature preserve in Sturgeon Bay is expecting an even busier outdoor holiday season.  Despite the temporary closure of the John Collins Learning Center due to the pandemic, Crossroads at Big Creek has remained open for nature enthusiasts.  Program Director and  Naturalist Coggin Herringa says trail hikes during the holidays have become a tradition for many families. 


Herringa adds that free cross-country ski rentals this winter are still being planned on weekends, but Mother Nature must cooperate with some significant snowfall before the groomed trails open.  Crossroads at Big Creek has trails through the three properties on its 125-acre preserve; the main campus at Big Creek, the Cove property on Utah Street, and the Ida Bay land on Canal and Cove Road.
