Potluck & Program: The Prairies of Pre-Settlement Jo Daviess County

June 7 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

What did the landscape of Jo Daviess County look like prior to the arrival of the first European settlers?

JDCF, in partnership with the Galena/Jo Daviess County Historical Society and Museum and the Galena Cellars Vineyard, invite you to a June 7 presentation by Illinois Natural Area Surveyor Randy Nyboer.  Randy will address this question and many more about the history of the land cover in Jo Daviess County and the rest of the driftless area of Northwest Illinois.  A potluck will begin at 5:30, with an optional brief tour of the winery and vineyard at 5 p.m.  The presentation will begin at 7 pm, for those wishing to attend just the talk.  If attending the potluck, please bring a side dish to pass and your own table service.  A main dish will be provided and wine will be available for purchase.  RSVP’s are not necessary and everyone is welcome.

We thank the First Community Bank of Galena/Apple River State Bank for sponsoring our 2017 potluck and program speaker series.
