Crossroads at Big Creek Endowment Fund
Crossroads at Big Creek is an environmental preserve welcoming learners of all ages to programs in science, history and the environment. Begun in 1991 as a school forest, Crossroads is now a private donor-supported nonprofit.
While schools still use the Collins Learning Center and environmental preserve extensively, Crossroads also offers or host classes, lectures, workshops and conventions for learners of all ages in its lecture hall and other facilities. Visitors enjoy the environmental exhibits and each summer, the laboratory is utilized by researchers working on Great Lakes and water quality issues. Countless Door County residents and visitors use our trails for environmentally friendly recreation and exercise.
Crossroads also collaborates with the Door County Historical Society in offering experience-based programs in the Historical Village at the Crossroads and with the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society and School District of Sturgeon Bay in operating the Leif Everson Observatory and Stonecipher Astronomy Center.
