The annual Spring Wings Bird Festival is happening in Fallon this weekend. I really wish I could make it down. Here is a blurb from their facebook page.
"Spring Wings Bird Festival is an annual celebration of shorebird and waterfowl migration through the Lahontan Valley. Our mission is to encourage growth of this educational event, promote interest in and awareness of the Lahontan Valley Wetlands.
The Lahontan Valley Wetlands are recognized as a site of international importance by the Western Hemispheric Shorebird Reserve Network, a ‘Globally Important Bird Area’ by the American Bird Conservancy, and an ‘Important Bird Area’ by the Audubon Society.
The Spring Wings Festival introduces the connection between all aspects of the Lahontan Valley: habitat, wildlife, history, humans, and how the community works together to protect and preserve natural resources."
