Sturgeon Bay – Walk with Aldo
March 5 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Aldo Leopold loved the land, he was involved in restoration (before it was a thing) and he also was a pioneer in environmental research. Plus, he loved to fish. I have to believe that if he were alive today, he would be fascinated by our Fish Tales Lecture Series, the Science of Fisheries Biology of the Great Lakes.
Crossroads at Big Creek invites the community to Walk with Aldo anytime from 10:00 a.m. until dark on Saturday, March 5. A route will be marked with green ribbons. At intervals along the trail, quotations from Aldo Leopold’s writings will be posted. People are invited to walk alone, with a family, or with a group to ponder or perhaps, discuss these inspiring words.
At 2:00 p.m., we will show the Wisconsin Public Television documentary, “Emma Toft –At One with Nature.” This video tells of one of Door County’s environmental pioneers and her willingness to fight for and protect the land she loved.
At 3:00pm – WPS program “Hometown Stories-Door County” contains several segments (some not aired in the WPS production) featuring Door County environmentalists.
