Fundraising Dinner May 20 to Accompany Spring Wings Festival 2017


Spring Wings 2017 prepares for flight!

The annual Spring Wings Festival is set for Friday afternoon May 19 and Saturday, May 20 this year.  Anticipated activities include the return of the Bugs and Butterflies Insect Petting Zoo, at EC Best school gym on Friday afternoon.  Guided nature tours of the Lahontan Valley will take place at the same time, and with the great water year, we expect to see a lot more migratory shorebirds and waders in the field.  Reservation information coming by March 15.

The Festival continues Saturday May 20 with guided morning nature tours, hands-on activities and displays at the Convention Center from 10am - 3pm, as well as specialized workshops on local topics that may include Gardening for Wildlife, Basic Birdwatching, Beekeeping, Monarch Butterfly Citizen Science, Birds of Prey, Nature Art, Tribal Arts and History, and more!

A fundraising dinner event is planned for 5pm Saturday, May 20, at the Fallon Convention Center.  This fun family event will raise funds to support the Festival, youth education and outdoor experiences in northern Nevada.  Tickets will be available on this site, or at select Fallon area businesses by March 1. 

Updates posted on www.springwings.org as they become available. Stay tuned and thanks for your support!
