Be Our Guest! Where Art & Conservation Meet

Join us to celebrate nature as the muse for fine art and artists and raise money for waterfowl conservation! Tickets are now available for our 2018 Premiere Night Party.  This year, we’ve teamed up with Lyon Distilling for some specialty “Waterfowl Cocktails” and are working with some of our signature artists to offer “quick draws” to be auctioned at our “Making Way for Ducklings Auction” being held right our front of the Waterfowl Building. Will you join us to help raise monies to ensure our ducks, geese and swans have homes for the winter here?

Festival Reveals 2018 Featured Sculpture!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The 2018 Waterfowl Festival has revealed this year’s Featured Art piece, a sculpture by Canadian artist Eric Tardif, which is unlike any work selected before. The impressionistic bronze stunningly showcases the “grace, calm, peacefulness and formality” of two long-tailed birds, which very much follows the founding wildlife mission and tradition of the Festival from the 1970’s. Read more about the 46-inch-tall piece titled  “The Lovers” here.
