Northern California’s wetlands and wildlife festival!
Friday & Saturday, February 24 & 25, 2017
Duck Days officially begins with a Welcome Reception on Friday, February 24, 5:30-7:30pm at the Davis Arts Center. The evening features an outstanding wildlife art exhibit created by high school students of Yolo County as well as a display of California Junior Duck Stamp art. The reception is free and open to the public.
Duck Days is a family oriented, community-based outdoor festival. Field trips are led by some of the region’s most experienced birders and naturalists. On-site activities for families include interactive exhibits, wetland themed arts and crafts, trout fishing for kids, and much more. The Exhibit Hall features adorable mallard ducklings as well as some of the raptors currently being cared for by the CA Raptor Center. Food is available on-site for purchase.
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. There will also be a mobile aquarium that will showcase many of our native species.
Admission for CA Duck Days is $20/adult. Children under 17 are FREE when accompanied by an adult. Field trips cost an additional $10 per adult. All participants are encouraged to preregister due to limited space on field-trips.
Duck Days is held at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters at 45211 County Road 32B in Davis, CA.

E-mail: "Constantia Oomen,

2012-02-18 20:16:12 Hi Constantia, I'm forwarding your question to the organizers at Yolo Basin, but I believe you pick up the physical tickets when you check in at the event itself. Let me get your question to the coordinators and I'll let them know that this isn't readily clear! —KelseyCondell
2012-02-18 23:41:20 @ KelseyCondell Would be great, yeah! I guess we won't receive them through regular (snail) mail anymore (because it's next week). There was this possibility to print the receipt, but there's really not much on it (it's almost empty). Thanks! —ConstantiaOomen
2012-02-23 15:39:05 I have received a very friendly and informative e-mail of Lori about the Californian Duck Days. Maybe it's good to post it here, in case somebody missed the e-mail or something:
