Yolo Basin Foundation and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife invite artists to spend a morning painting at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area on Wednesday, Aug. 27.

The plein air outing will begin at 9 a.m. with an introduction by Yolo Basin Foundation staff members who will give participants background on the 16,000-acre preserve. Then the artists will caravan to a part of the Wildlife Area not normally open to the public to paint.

Yolo Basin Foundation is featuring an art show at Bucks for Ducks, its annual fundraiser on Friday, Oct. 17. Artists are invited to paint on prepared 8-by-8-inch wooden blocks if they would like to donate their talents to the art show. The blocks will be available on the morning of the event and also in the Yolo Basin Foundation office.

All interested participants will meet at 8 a.m. in Parking Lot A (the first parking lot with the large notice board) in the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area, at the west end of the Yolo Causeway. Artists should bring their own materials and be prepared for a summer day with sunscreen, hats and water.

No reservations are required, and the event is free. Further directions to reach the Wildlife Area are available on the Yolo Basin Foundation website at www.yolobasin.org. For more information, call Betty Berteaux at 530-756-1686.
