While many of the Earth Week Door County events are still going on as planned, Winter Storm Evelyn will end up delaying tree planting at Crossroads at Big Creek. Sevastopol and Sturgeon Bay high school students were expected to visit learning center and help transplant rescue trees throughout Earth Week but have postponed their Earth Day celebrations until May for better weather. Crossroads director Coggin Heeringa explains their plan for this years tree planting.
Heeringa assures the public that Crossroads at Big Creek is not ignoring trees this year, even with their heavy involvement with “Celebrate Water.” Crossroads will be still be hosting their Earth Day hike on April 22 at 1 pm, as well as Wild Words, “Celebrate the Waters of Door County” on Thursday at 7 pm as part of the Earth Week celebrations.
