“Birds of Georgia” will be the topic when Dr. David DesRochers, Assistant Professor of Biology at Dalton State College, addresses a Lunch & Learn program sponsored by the Dalton State Foundation Friday, March 15, at 12 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,” says DesRochers. With a background in bird ecology and conservation, Dr. 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 Ph.D. at Tufts University.

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