Crossroads at Big Creek made sure WaterFest not only fit the theme, but also left attendees thinking about how they can protect the environment. A joint effort between the Sturgeon Bay educational center, Sustain Door, and Healthy Water Door County, the event not only featured kids activities but also a number of presentations explaining the importance of the natural resource. Crossroads at Big Creek Director Coggin Heeringa says it is important to combine learning and fun with all of their activities, especially when it comes to water.
Heeringa says WaterFest serves as a bridge for people simply learning about water to becoming aware of its biggest threats. Celebrate Water Door County was introduced by the Door County Community Foundation earlier this year and will culminate next year with summit featuring several experts in the field.
