DAVIS, CA (MPG) - Yolo Basin Foundation is hosting California Duck Days, Northern California’s wetlands and wildlife festival, on Saturday, April 27th. This family-friendly event will take place at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters and will include live animals, wetland themed arts and crafts, environmental education activities, hourly tours of the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area, and much more!

Whether kids help build Wood Duck boxes to create nesting opportunities, dissect owl pellets to learn about owls, or borrow rubber boots to explore the invertebrate life living in wetland ponds, there will never be a dull moment at the festival for those curious about the natural world. The exhibitor area will host more than 20 local environmental organizations providing information about their missions and offering interactive, hands-on activities. Animal ambassadors will include baby ducklings, large raptors, and ambassador bats. Food vendors will be on site.
