Monthly Membership Meetings

Quad City Audubon Society holds monthly membership meetings from September through May, on the second Thursday of the month beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Butterworth Center, 1105 8th Street, Moline. Every meeting includes a presentation on a natural history or conservation topic. Topics run the gamut from butterflies to endangered ocean life, to ice-age geology, and, of course, birds.
