As previously announced, Spring Wings 2015 will take place on Saturday, May 16 at the Churchill County Fairgrounds in Fallon, NV. The event will include free talks, exhibits, hands-on fun for the whole family and a few, free Hot Spot tours around local wetlands and bird areas in town.
There will also be a Decoy Carving Seminar on Saturday. There will be 12 slots available to purchase at $35 each. The decoy this year will be a Greater Yellowlegs--a common and attractive shorebird found in the Stillwater marsh. If you'd like to reserve your spot(s), click on the link to the right of this page and add the quantity you'd like to purchase to your PayPal cart. Once you pay, your seats will be reserved and we'll send you a confirmation.
Amazing Birds of Prey will be a free, feature presentation featuring the knowledgeable speaker, Marie Gaspari-Crawford. There will be other presentations, too with a special one on owls. Stay tuned for the final lineup!
There is also space available for a limited amount of vendors. The reservation fee is $20/table for the day (from 10:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m.). If you're interested, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Susan 775-423-5128 ext. 224. We will be able to provide additional information. In the meantime, please make sure your city/county permits are current.
We also have Tule duck shirts available for purchase. We have about a dozen of each size (adult S-XL) for $20 each and XXL for $22. Free USPS shipping is included in the price. The shirts feature custom artwork depicting the iconic Canvasback duck tule decoy used historically by the Paiute people for centuries in the Stillwater marsh. They were designed specifically for the Friends of Stillwater NWR Group. They are only available for purchase here. Choose your size and quantity to the right, pay through PayPal and be sure to have your correct mailing address (and name) and we'll ship shortly thereafter.
Stay posted as other tours will likely become available. We're hoping to offer many for free this year, but seats will still be limited due to van sizes.
