This coming Saturday, July 16th (from 8:00am-8:00pm), is Carson Valley's Wings and Willows Festival. There will be all sorts of interesting and educational activities to partake in. There are handful of nature tours, including several different bird tours, wetland and habitat exploration tours, butterflies and wildflower tours, Carson River floats, and much more, check out the tour schedule for times and locations. In addition to the tours, there will be workshops and presentations on a variety of topics including invasive species, bears, bats, wildflowers, birds, and butterflies, for times check out the workshop and presentation schedule. I really wish I could make it out to this event, unfortunately I'll be out of town--so if anyone is able to attend please feel free to comment here. I would love to hear all about it!


The Kirkwood Wildflower Festival


Kirkwood Mountain Resort is hosting its Wildflower Festival on July 30th (12:00-5:00) and July 31st (for some reason it doesn't give times for Sunday). There will be guided hikes, wine and beer tasting and a photography workshop--all for an additional price. There will also be live music, BBQ and the Mountain Bike Park and Zip Tahoe will be open! Come out, play and enjoy the wildflowers!
