Another Great Spring Wings Festival!

Spring Wings Festival 2013 completed another successful 3-day event with the release of a beautiful Red-tailed Hawk on Sunday afternoon. Her return to the wild was witnessed by about 25 people on a calm, sunny day. A great conclusion to a full weekend of birding, learning and environmental awareness in the midst of the internationally recognized Lahontan Valley Wetlands.

Thanks to all who participated, supported and volunteered to make the 16th annual Festival a success. If interested in volunteering for refuge projects or becoming a member of the Friends of Stillwater group to work with environmental education or other outreach programs, please send us an email!

Stay tuned for seasonal updates on programs offered during the year, and maybe we'll see you on the refuge!
