The Northwest Illinois Forestry Association (NIFA) will welcome Kevin Oetken at its annual dinner meeting on Tuesday, March 28th, at 7 pm at the Mount Carroll Church of God. Following dinner, Mr. Oetken will make a presentation showcasing Native American artifacts, which he has personally found over 45 years of collecting.  Kevin is a consultant forester and owns Woodland Forestry Consulting. He has a great interest in how Native Americans used trees, wildflowers, and wildlife for thousands of years, and how European settlement has impacted our environment in a much shorter period of time.

Reservations must be made by Sunday, March 19th.  With a reservation, fee for the dinner and program is $20 for NIFA members and their guests or $25 for non-members.  Without a reservation, it is $30.  Dinner fees can be paid when you register here or at the door. The dinner this year will feature Arnold Farm pork and beef.

Reservations can be made by phone to Kevin Cahill at 815-979-8900 or by email at or by clicking on the REGISTER button on this page.

The Church of God is located at 816 S. Clay Street, Mount Carroll, Illinois.  Clay Street is Route 78 and the Church is just north of Route 52/64 on the east side of Clay.
