IOU Spring Meeting: Chariton, May 5-7, 2017
Join us for the Spring 2017 IOU meeting to be held in Chariton on May 5-7 as we partner with the Lucas County tourism board for their inaugural Lucas County Birding Festival. For more details about the event, click here. Featured events include: Field trips, a Trumpeter Swan release, a Saturday night banquet with keynote presentation on Flammulated Owls by Heather Sanders from Ankeny and a night outing for Whip-poor-will and Chuck-will’s-widow.
Lucas County has the second highest percentage of public land in Iowa and has two of Iowa’s Bird Conservation Areas (BCA’s) – Stephens Forest and 1000 Acre Forest. The forests and grasslands host the typical southern Iowa specialties, including Northern Bobwhite, Northern Mockingbird and several resident warblers. As always, who knows what spring migration will bring. Hope to see you there to share great birding, conversation and fun. Deadline to sign up for meals is April 28th, so don't wait...register online now; it is quick and easy. We look forward to seeing you in Chariton!
