Have you ever really listened to the wildlife that comes out after dark? Bring the family and join JDCF’s Education and Outreach Manager, Jess Hepker, for a one hour tour to discover Schurmeier Teaching Forest after dark. Learn how your night vision works and which wildlife become active at night. Leave your flashlights at home and wear long pants and hiking boots.
Our 2019 calendar of events is taking shape. We have some exciting new outings planned in addition to our signature events of Camp Casper, Potluck and Program Series, Moonlight Frog Walk, and Meteors on the Mound. Scroll through and mark your calendars today!
JDCF is hosting a panel discussion on Extreme Weather: the impacts on landowners and tax payers. Prior to the event, winners of the Biggest Tree Contest will be announced!
Steve Keeffer, Jo Daviess County Engineer, Carrie McKillip, president of the National Extension Disaster Preparedness organization, and Justin Gehrts, Galena native and meteorologist with KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids, will present on the impacts and costs of the wave of extreme weather events we have already experienced as well as those predicted to come. It is free and RSVP’s are not required. We thank the First Community Bank of Galena/Apple River State Bank for their sponsorship of this program.
