Gladys Black: The Legacy of Iowa’s Bird Lady

Johnson County Conservation has received funding from Humanities Iowa, a private, non‐profit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, to host the presentation called, “Gladys Black: The Legacy of Iowa’s Bird Lady” by Larry Stone and Jon Stravers. A cultural resource for Iowans since 1971, Humanities Iowa offers many cultural and historical programs and grants to Iowa’s communities.

The late Gladys Black of Pleasantville, IA was widely known throughout Iowa as a conservationist, educator and amateur expert on birds. Larry and co-author Jon Stravers have written a book about Gladys. Larry’s slide program acknowledges this colorful woman’s impact on so many Iowans.

This presentation is free and open to the public. If you are a person with a disability who requires special assistance, please call 319-645-1011 in advance.
