California Duck Days, the annual Northern California wetlands and wildlife festival, is here again. Enjoy field trips to sites around the region. Among the dozen field trips to be offered are "Local Owling" and "Rice Farming". In addition, workshops are held throughout the day, such as waterfowl identification, wood duck box building and duck calling for kids.
One of the most popular events at Duck Days is the kid's fishing activity. Children may fish for trout in the demonstration wetlands or in a special pond for young children and then have their fish cleaned and packed to take home. Children also really enjoy searching for insects in the pond and learning about the tracks and signs left by wildlife. There will also be a large mobile aquarium filled with local fish, including many native species, for everyone's viewing pleasure.
There will be a special workshop with live bats and a falconry demonstration in the field. The Duck Days Exhibit Hall will have interactive displays from 20 area environmental organizations and will feature the crowd-pleasing mallard ducklings, as well as live raptors.
