As the Celebrate Water initiative continues, Crossroads at Big Creek is teaching kids the importance of water. Crossroads hosts school-aged groups all year round and has several different tools such as a water flow table as well as the different bodies of water on the property. Coggin Heeringa, director of Crossroads at Big Creek shares why she thinks it’s important to teach the kids to appreciate water at a young age.
Each school group that visits Crossroads also completes a service project, such as putting woodchips on the paths or cutting buckthorn. With the start of summer, Crossroads will be hosting volunteer work days on Saturday’s at 9 am.
