Welcome to the Yolo Basin Foundation!

Discover the wetlands and wildlife of the 16,800-acre Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area between Davis and Sacramento in the Central Valley of California. Yolo Basin Foundation provides a myriad of programs to make this possible.

We have events for all ages, including California Duck Days Wetlands Festival, Flyway Nights Speaker Series, Wildlife Area Tours, Gaggle of Gatherings Field Trips and Workshops, Bat Talk & Walks, and many others.
