The Whiteside Forum Returns to Odell This Sunday


The Whiteside Forum continues their 2023-2024 Season with guest expert Brian Ritter speaking to “Conservation: Nahant Marsh, the Mississippi River, and Beyond” on Sunday afternoon October  29th  in the Community Room of the Odell Public Library in Morrison.  This event will begin at 2:00pm, located at 307 S. Madison St. and is open to everyone free of charge.

Brian Ritter is the Executive Director of Nahant Marsh and the Program Director for the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) Conservation program. He teaches EICC courses on site and uses Nahant preserve as an outdoor classroom.

The Nahant Marsh preserve is the largest urban wetland on the Upper Mississippi River in Davenport, IA and a former Superfund Site.  After the cleanup, wildlife and plant life showed a vast improvement. So much so, that it was decided to make the wetland a nature preserve and Nahant Marsh Education Center was born
