LIVE WEBINAR: Dr. Daryl Watson and IDNR Landscape Architect George Bellovics speaking on JDCF’s new addition to Apple River Canyon

July 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This spring, the Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation (JDCF) announced the largest land purchase in its 27-year history, the Dick Dvorak Addition to Apple River Canyon.

To bring this important acquisition into perspective, we hope you will join us for a live JDCF webinar. Providing historical perspective will be Dr. Daryl Watson, historian, educator, and former Executive Director of the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society and Museum. For conservation perspective, we will hear from George Bellovics, Landscape Architect for the northwestern region of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.  The acquisition and restoration of the Dick Dvorak Addition to Apple River Canyon was funded by grants from Grand Victoria Foundation and Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation as well as a loan from The Conservation Fund. JDCF wishes to thank them as well as the members and donors who have made this acquisition possible.
