This annual event, which takes place in the heart of the Pacific Flyway, features a wide variety of field trips, workshops, and special activities for people of all ages. There are two events, a reception Friday night and then the all day festival on Saturday.

California Duck Days officially begins with a free welcome reception featuring an outstanding wildlife art exhibit by high school students of Yolo County, and a display of California Junior Duck Stamp winners. In addition, there will be a raffle, food, and entertainment. The reception is free and open to the public.
Duck Days Festival – Saturday, February 20, 2016 – Tickets Required
California Duck Days, the annual Northern California wetlands and wildlife festival!
Enjoy field trips to sites around the region. Some examples of past field trip offerings include “Local Owling”, “Yolo County Birding Hotspots”, and “Rice Farming First Hand”.
Workshops such as waterfowl identification, wood duck box building, and duck calling for kids are held throughout the day. One of the most popular events at Duck Days is the kids’ fishing activity. Children may fish for trout in the demonstration wetlands and then have their fish cleaned and packed to take home.
The Duck Days Exhibit Hall will have interactive displays from local environmental organizations and will feature the crowd-pleasing Mallard ducklings, as well as live raptors, and activities for kids.
Please check back in January 2016 for updated activity, field trip, and ticket information.
