The Yolo Basin Foundation [website] is a community based organization founded in 1990 to help establish the Vic Fazio Yolo Wildlife Area. The foundation now focuses upon facilitating environmental education within the wildlife area in cooperation with the California Department of Fish & Game. The foundation concentrates its work in both education and restoration of the Yolo Bypass region of the North Delta and the Pacific Flyway. They are currently working with other organizations to plan the building and operation of a Pacific Flyway Visitor Center near the Vic Fazio Yolo Wildlife Area.
The foundation sponsors the California Duck Days, a wetlands festival held annually in February featuring birding field trips and workshops.
