Heeringa Honored

This Crossroads at Big Creek announced that they founded the Coggin Heeringa Research and Education Endowment Fund to honor one of Door County’s influential members. The endowment funds will be used to contribute to ongoing research. 


While Crossroads has other endowments through their community foundation, they wanted one specifically for their research and education, and wanted to honor Heeringa in some way. They were able to merge these two ambitions, and Executive Director Laurel Hauser appreciates that the endowment will be a permanent fixture with Heeringa’s name forever attached to it. Hauser also appreciates the mark Heeringa has left so far at Crossroads. 



Heeringa spent two decades as the Executive Director until last year when she moved into the role of Program Director and Naturalist. People can visit the fund here.
