Field Trip: Feathers & Flight Workshop & Walk in Lagoon Valley

Date: Saturday June 17, 2017

Time: 9:00 AM

(NSAS Event)


Leader: Wendy Schackwitz

Description: Birds are the only living things that have feathers. Humans have a long history of fascination with feathers, using them as decorations, in our bedding, and as inspiration for developing the airplane. During this workshop we will explore a little of this history, as well as discuss all of the functions a feather has for birds.

The workshop will last from 9:00 to 9:30, followed by a walk through Lagoon Valley/Pena Adobe Regional Park. Walks are appropriate for all ages (children must be accompanied by an adult). Please bring binoculars if you have them and water.

Directions: Meet in the Pena Adobe parking lot. Take Hwy 80 north to Vacaville. Take the Pena Adobe exit and drive to east to the Pena Adobe parking lot.
