Sturgeon Bay, WI (October 26, 2016) –Crossroads at Big Creek has been selected as a 2016 Cellcom Green Gift recipient. The nonprofit received a $2680 Green Gift from Cellcom to support installation of a bird and butterfly garden near its Collins Learning Center.

"Our three preserves are crisscrossed with hiking and ski trails. We have a wonderful dock on Big Creek Cove for observation, thanks in part to a Green Gift from Cellcom. We have wetlands, prairies and forests, which are all marvelous for bird and butterfly watching. But many people cannot get to these places. Those with mobility issues, lack of stamina, young children and those with limited time simply cannot experience nature at close range,” said Coggin Herringa, director at Crossroads. “The Green Gift from Cellcom will support the addition of an accessible butterfly and bird garden and allow learners of all ages and abilities to enjoy nature right from the Collins Learning Center.”

The funding will be used to create walk ways and patio areas, establish bird feeding stations, plant native flowers and shrubs and create water features. The garden will also serve as a model for those hoping to create native landscaping in their own yards.

Participants will keep a record of all the items collected, research how and where they can be recycled in our community, and make at least one field trip to a recycling collection site to observe what it looks like and learn what happens to the items next.

“Over the course of their lifetime today’s youth will purchase and dispose of hundreds of electronic devices. An estimated 40 million tons of electronic waste is disposed of each year and only about 12% of e-waste is recycled. This not only harms the environment, but is a huge missed opportunity for making wiser use of precious resources,” said Kevin Quevillon, executive director. “With help from the Cellcom Green Gift, the Kid Power program will increase awareness of the e-waste problem and empower them to take charge and recycle their own items, potentially pre-empting thousands of electronics from being thrown in the garbage.”
