Families will have a couple chances to explore nature together on Mother’s Day weekend at Crossroads at Big Creek. Crossroads will be offering the “Walk to the Dock” on May 12th and the Mother’s Day Hike on May 13th for families to spend time together and learn about the importance of caring for nature. Coggin Heeringa, director of Crossroads at Big Creek, says working with families is one of the most rewarding parts of being involved with the program.
Educating kids at a young age also seems to set a path for further conservation efforts according to Coggin. Both programs will be free to attend.
