A Visit from Will Dilg" - A Performance by Steven Marking


Please join us as actor, musician, and American Cruise Line favorite, Steven Marking presents a multi-media performance about the founding of the Refuge.

One hundred years ago, Will Dilg was the singular driving force behind the formation of our Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge. The Refuge borders all of Jo Daviess County, including three JDCF preserves. In all, it covers 261 river miles and 244,000 acres of wildlife habitat, extending from the Chippewa River in Wisconsin to Rock Island, Illinois. Steven Marking’s multi-media production showcases his talents as an actor, musician, and filmmaker, all in service of bringing to life the true story of the man who roused a nation to a fete of conservation never before imagined.

This event is presented by the Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation in partnership with the Galena Center for the Arts.
