The California Duck Days Wildlife Art Show is on exhibit now at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St. This special exhibit, which will be open through Feb. 23, features student art from Cache Creek, Davis, Esparto, Pioneer, River City, Winters and Woodland high schools. The show also includes a traveling display of the best of the California Junior Duck Stamp Art.

More than 280 wildlife-themed pieces make up the exhibit.

“The entries are different every year,” says Betty Berteaux, who organized the Duck Days Art Show. “There’s a lovely group of clay animals mounted on wood and some unique wood collages as well as ‘palos de agua’ (water sticks) painted with wildlife. There are also wonderful paintings and photographs.”

A public reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22, at the Art Center will honor the student artists. It is a free event, and members of the community are invited.

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. 23.

“Duck Days is a great day for the whole family,” Brice says. “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 view tule elk at Grizzly Island.”

California Duck Days activities take place at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters, 45211 County Road 32B (East 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 will be available on site. For more information and to register online, visit www.yolobasin.org and click on “Duck Days” or call 530-757-3780.
