The California Duck Days Wildlife Art Show is open now at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St. in Davis. This special exhibit, which will run through Saturday, Feb. 25, features student art from Davis, Winters, Woodland, Pioneer, Cache Creek, Esparto and River City high schools.

The exhibit also includes a traveling display of the best of the California Junior Duck Stamp Art.

More than 200 wildlife-themed pieces are showcased.

“The entries are a pleasant surprise for me every year,” said Betty Berteaux, who organizes the Duck Days Art Show. “For example, this year, Wayne Hall’s students at Esparto High School painted individual wooden eggs with wildlife themes and hung them on a tree branch! There are also many ceramic pieces and photographs as well as wonderful paintings.”

The student artists will be honored at a public reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, at the Art Center. Admission is free and the public is invited.

Duck Days Steering Committee coordinator Ann Brice said space is still available for most of the field trips and workshops being held during the all-day Duck Days Festival on Saturday, Feb. 25.

“Duck Days is a great day for the whole family,” Brice said. “You can choose to go on a field trip, participate in workshops and activities at the festival or do both. We have everything at Duck Days from trout fishing for kids to a field trip to learn about rice farming for adults.”

California Duck Days activities take place at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters, 45211 Chiles Road in South Davis. The cost is $20 to $25 per person, but children under 16 are free when accompanied by an adult.

Field trips, workshops and other activities are open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Food is available on-site.
