Driftless Birding Fest is set for November 10

The Driftless Area Education and Visitors Center in Lansing will host the Driftless Birding Fest Saturday, November 10. The Fest will include speakers, exhibits and self-guided field trips to area hotspots.

Speakers will include Dr. Paul Skrade of Upper Iowa University at 1 p.m. speaking on the Driftless Region’s unique population of warblers and his studies to learn more about them. Additional speakers and times will be announced closer to the November 10 date.

The Upper Mississippi Flyway is used by over 300 species of birds during the Spring and Fall migrations.  This festival will give novice and expert birders a chance to learn from professionals who have traveled the world on why and when these many species are utilizing the local area.

The Driftless Area Education and Visitors Center is located at 1944 Columbus Road, Lansing. It is operated by the Allamakee County Conservation Board. For more information on this program or any program, contact the center at 563-538-0403 or follow Allamakee County Conservation online.
