    Volunteer millers of de Immigrant Windmill will be sponsoring a presentation featuring the history of the Eastern Bluebird and recovery from a decline in the United States. Representatives Dick Bach, Barbara Baird, and Joan Harmet from the Jo Daviess County Conservation Foundation will present facts and statistics about the bluebirds and red-headed woodpeckers here and now. Both species are now seen widely in our area. They will also share predictions of the future for these cavity nesters. There will be an opportunity for a question and answer period concerning the habitat and care of these native birds.

    Monthly programming is hosted by the mill area volunteers with financial assistance from a D.S. Flikkema Foundation grant. The event is free and open to the public on Thursday, June 13 at 6:00pm in the Windmill Cultural Center located at 111-10th Avenue Fulton, IL directly across from the authentic Dutch windmill. The facility is accessible to persons with disabilities. Light refreshments will be served following the program.
