Building Better Birders Workshop
September 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Dubuque County Conservation Board is hosting a Building Better Birders Workshop. The
event will be held as on Thursday, September 9th from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at Swiss Valley Nature
World-class birder Kelly McKay will present all there is to know about Iowa Woodpeckers. From their
super long tongues, how they cling to trees, furry noses, and how the way they make music come to figure
out why they are amazing. Not to mention how to do they not get headaches from banging their heads
against trees all day?
Funding for this workshop was provided by the Resource Enhancement and Protection-Conservation
Education Program. This workshop will be conducted by Kelly McKay (BioEco Research and Monitoring
Center), with assistance from Mark Roberts (Clinton County Conservation) and Brian Ritter (Nahant
Marsh Education Center).
