“THE BIG CATS OF JOHNSON COUNTY” and

“CAN WE EAT THE FISH?”

Iowa River Friends will host a two-part forum  the morning of Saturday, March 22nd, starting at 10:00 am in the Extension Building at the Johnson County Fairgrounds on S. Riverside Drive, Iowa City. The talks are  open to the public and free of charge.

Vince Evelsizer, the Furbearer Biologist for the Department of Natural Resources, will have current information about the wild felines roaming Johnson County. Mary Skopec, water quality expert and teacher with the DNR will talk about the health of the Iowa River and its tributaries. She and one of her colleagues will describe the kinds of fish that live in the Iowa River, and the fish that may return as the river returns to pristine condition.

Iowa River Friends is a voluntary, non-profit membership organization dedicated to the protection, improvement and enjoyment of the entire watershed of the Iowa River including its tributaries. This program is one of the quarterly IRF presentations aimed at involving the people of the watershed in various aspects of its care and enjoyment.
