California Duck Days 2017
The 22nd annual California Duck Days, the annual northern California wetlands and wildlife festival, will take place at the Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area headquarters. There are plenty of attractions for all ages. Families with young children tend to stay at the headquarters, enjoying the many workshops and activities, while adults often like to go on half- or full-day field trips. The field trips include a trip to visit a rice farm to learn about rice production in Northern California, and a tour of the Knaggs Ranch fish project in the Yolo Bypass, as well as many birding trips. Workshops will be held throughout the day, such as dog training, wood duck box building and fly-tying for young anglers. There will also be a special workshop with live bats and a falconry demonstration in the field. The Duck Days Exhibit Hall will have interactive displays from area environmental organizations and will feature the crowd-pleasing Mallard ducklings, as well as live birds of prey from the California Raptor Center, including Sullivan the Bald Eagle. One of the most popular events is the kids’ fishing activity. Children may fish for trout in the demonstration wetlands, and then have their fish cleaned and refrigerated to take home. There will also be a large mobile aquarium filled with local fish, including many native species. Space is limited; pre-registration is encouraged.
