For those who enjoy discovering the outdoors indoors, the California Duck Days Wildlife Art Show is currently on display at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St., Davis.

This special exhibit, which will run through Feb. 22, features student art from the following Yolo County high schools: Cache Creek, Davis, Esparto, Pioneer, River City, Winters and Woodland. The show also includes a traveling display of the best of the California Junior Duck Stamp Art. The Art Center is open every day except Sunday.
There are more than 280 wildlife-themed pieces on exhibit.

“It’s always a surprise to see what the students submit,” Duck Days Art Show organizer Betty Berteaux said. “This year there is a large group of lovely, small-format watercolors, and we have more ceramic pieces and photographs than before.”

On Friday, Feb. 21, there will be a public reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the center to honor the artists. It is a free event, and members of the community are invited to see the artwork, meet the artists and enjoy sushi courtesy of the California Rice Commission.

Duck Days Steering Committee Coordinator Ann Brice reports that there are still spaces available for most of the field trips and workshops being held during the all-day Duck Days Festival on Saturday, Feb. 22.

Brice added: “Duck Days is great fun for the whole family. You can choose to go on a field trip, participate in workshops and activities at the festival or do both. We have a wide variety of activities from trout fishing for kids to a field trip to view tule elk at Grizzly Island.”

California Duck Days is held at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters, 45211 County Road 32B (East Chiles Road) in South Davis. The cost is $20-$25 per person, depending on the number of field trips. Children under 16 are free when accompanied by an adult. Field trips, workshops and other activities are open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Food provided by Whole Foods Market Davis is available on site.
