Yolo Basin Foundation will hold its annual fundraiser Bucks for Ducks on Friday, Nov. 9, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St. in Davis. Chuck Bonham, director of the California Department of Fish and Game, is the honored guest and will address the gathering.

This gala fundraising event features an exhibit titled “Art and Photography of the Bypass and Beyond: A Celebration of Central Valley Nature and Agriculture.” The show includes a juried photography exhibit of 58 images taken by local photographers and 36 artworks created by local artists. The art and photography will be available to purchase at Bucks for Ducks through a silent auction. A link to view the photos and the art is on the Yolo Basin Foundation website, www.yolobasin.org.

The evening also features dinner from The Buckhorn along with a live auction called by popular auctioneer Joe Gates and a raffle with a deluxe snowshoe package donated by REI as the grand prize.

Tickets for the “Gaggle of Gatherings,” a series of parties and adventures where guests may purchase single, set-priced tickets, also will be available at Bucks for Ducks. Among the 11 activities are a “Rice from Field to Table” field trip led by local grower John Brennan, a photography workshop with renowned nature photographer Lewis Kemper and an evening with Charlie Bamforth, professor of brewing sciences at UC Davis.

All of the gatherings are described on the Yolo Basin Foundation website, and tickets not sold at Bucks for Ducks will be available for purchase online after the event.

Tickets to attend the Bucks for Ducks event are $50 per person in advance or $60 at the door. Tickets may be purchased at www.yolobasin.org or by calling 530-757-3780. They also will be available at the door if there is space. The event sold out last year.

A full listing of live auction items and raffle prizes, and information on the Gaggle of Gatherings, also can be found on the website. All proceeds from Bucks for Ducks will be used to support the wetlands education programs of the nonprofit Yolo Basin Foundation.
