Join The Group For Wings & Wetlands Weekend

By Staff | May 12, 2016

The Palo Alto County Conservation Board is sponsoring their annual Wings & Wetlands Weekend, Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 15. Events take place at Lost Island Huston Park north of Ruthven.

Beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday, learn about local “Ducks at a Glance” with guest speaker Howard Paul. Following this presentation, students can join local Ducks Unlimited members for Greenwings youth programs including slingshots, dogs & decoys and more. Come experience some outdoor fun and prizes.

On Sunday, May 15 join us for rolls and coffee before we head out on a Bird Walk with Lee Schoenewe. The group will meet at the Nature Center.

This is a great time to watch for birds as it is during peak migration for many species. Last year 157 birds were spotted during Wings & Wetlands events.

Programs are free, but registration for the youth event is encouraged by calling the Lost Island Nature Center at 712-837-4866.
