Birds of Georgia topic at lunch

“Birds of Georgia” will be the topic when David DesRochers, assistant professor of biology at Dalton State College, addresses a Lunch & Learn program sponsored by the Dalton State Foundation on Friday, March 15, at noon in the James E. Brown Center.  

“The state of Georgia provides habitat to more than 400 species of birds that spend part or all of their lives here,” said DesRochers. With a background in bird ecology and conservation, DesRochers will provide Lunch & Learn attendees with a brief overview of the lives of several representative bird species.

DesRochers came to Dalton State in 2010 after completing his master’s degree at the College of William & Mary and his doctorate at Tufts University.

Cost of the lunch program is $10; reservations are required by March 13 and may be made online at www.alumni.daltonstate.edu/events. Those with questions are invited to contact the Dalton State Foundation at (706) 272-4473.
