UPCOMING EVENTS

All events are open to the public:


July 9, Sunday—Lyndon Prairie Work (1/2) Day. Sunday July 9th is the annual Lyndon-Agnew Work Party to remove sweet clover from the native prairie in
Whiteside County. This is a high quality tall grass prairie but it needs help to preserve it. The work is not hard but it is often very hot as we wade into the unshaded grasses to remove sweet clover by either cutting or digging. Long- sleeved shirts, long pants, gloves and a hat are strongly advised as is sunscreen and insect repellant. We generally work from about 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. and return around noon. Those interested in attending should meet for carpooling at Jewel Grocery in Silvis, on John Deere Road at 7:00 a.m.

August 19, Saturday— Port Louisa National Wildlife Refuge Field Trip. Meet at Credit Island Lodge 7:00 a.m. Carpool to Port Louisa NWR Headquarters at 10728 County Road X61, Wapello, Iowa 52653. The refuge will be open for the QCAS tour and a staff guide will assist us. Half day trip. We hope to see
shorebirds.

September 16, Saturday, Wild Cat Den State Park Field Trip. Meet at Credit Island Lodge at 7:00 a.m. Carpool to Wild Cat Den State Park near Muscatine,
Iowa. Half day trip. Fall migration!
