A past non-profit organization has fulfilled its purpose in giving the community a local nature learning center. The Sturgeon Bay Education Foundation envisioned bringing Door County residents together to improve their overall quality of life. From this vision, the foundation created what the community now knows as the nature preserve, Crossroads at Big Creek. Steve Kase, former president of the Sturgeon Bay Education Foundation, says another member named John Collins was the main source of funding for the nature preserve to be built.
Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay offers environmental, educational and other recreational programs for the whole community along with the trails being open daily to the public.
