Duck Days Festival at Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters
Saturday, February 23, 9am, Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters, $20 per car
What has wings, has knowledge about ducks and smells like a duck? You—after you attend the Duck Days Festival, that is. Now celebrating its 25th year of celebrating the celebrated waterfowl, the Yolo Basin Foundation’s shindig offers more nature activities than you can shake a duck at. You can help make duck nest boxes, learn how to tie a fly, take a duck decoy painting class and meet some real-live, honest-to-goodness ducks, bats and bird dogs. If your life’s been devoid of wetland wandering, you can wonder at the winding waterways and the wildlife within. You can even learn how to do a duck call, which has numerous real-world applications—unlike trigonometry. 45211 County Road 32B in Davis, yolobasin.org/californiaduckdays.
