Crossroads At Big Creek's Program Director, Coggin Herringa, is looking forward to the positive influences the Ecological Restoration Plan for 2021 will bring to the area. Using this plan, Herringa is hoping to restore the wetlands and restore the water in Big Creek. This plan includes planting at least 4,000 trees this year. Along with the trees, they are also planning on removing invasive species and replacing them with plants beneficial to the ecosystem. This plan will be carried out by contractors and staff of Crossroads and people Herringa describes as Habitat Healers.
Herringa hopes that with this Restoration Plan, other people will learn from Crossroads as an example of how to help the environment and Door County's waters.
