Allamakee County Conservation is offering a Driftless Area Birding Festival on Saturday, November 10, 2018. Birders and all who have an interest in nature are invited to the famed Driftless Area to attend.
Bald Eagles, Tundra Swans and other waterfowl are concentrating on the Mississippi River, and wintering Golden Eagles and other raptors and non-raptor species will be in their traditional haunts. Numbers of migrants and wintering species are expected to be at their peak on Nov. 10. An indoor highlight of the festival will be a presentation by Dr. Paul Skrade, Upper Iowa University, covering his research on Cerulean Warblers and other nesting species in Northeast Iowa.
This event will be headquartered at the gorgeous and highly informative Driftless Area Education and Visitors Center, the brand new home of the Allamakee County Conservation. The center is located just 1-mile south of Lansing, and offers a wonderful deck-view of the Mississippi River Valley and the scenic bluffs at the very heart of the multi-state Driftless Area.
Experiencing the variety of interpretive exhibits and historical materials at the Driftless Area Education and Visitors Center is reason enough to attend and participate. And there is a great number of birding and nature viewing opportunities within minutes of the center.
Ross Gerdes, Naturalist with Allamakee County Conservation, is the lead person for this event. For more information, please see the attached press release, or call the Driftless Area Education and Visitors Center at 563-538-0403.
