Friends Annual Meeting with Larry Reis

Learn About Driftless Daytrips in Winneshiek County

Spring is a wonderful time to start getting outside to enjoy the natural world!  On Monday, April 24th the public is invited to a presentation by naturalist Larry Reis at the annual meeting of Friends of the Decorah Public Library at Impact Coffee.  He will highlight three places in Winneshiek County worth visiting early in the season—Lake Meyer Park, Malanaphy Springs State Preserve, and Ludwig Prairie Preserve—and will share photographs of the wildflowers, birds, butterflies, and bees to be found at those locations in late April and early May.

Larry Reis has worked for 40 years with the Winneshiek County Conservation Board (WCCB), which is celebrating its 65th anniversary in 2023. He has been at the Lake Meyer Nature Center since 1973 after earning a Biology degree from Luther College and a Masters’ degree in environmental science from the University of Northern Iowa.  As a naturalist for the Conservation Board, he helps school children and adults learn about the natural resources in the local area through indoor programs and outdoor field trips.  He also helps other conservation staff improve natural areas by planting prairie back on the landscape and enhancing existing woodlands and wetlands to benefit local flora and fauna.

The event is at Impact Coffee on West Water Street in Decorah on Monday, April 24th at 7:00 p.m. with doors opening at 6:45.  The public is invited with light appetizers provided and beverages available for purchase.  Please join us!
