"Ding" Darling Days
“Ding” Darling Days’ Family Fun Day on Sunday, October 14, culminates a weekend of eco-activities with all-free refuge tram tours, live wildlife presentations, hot dogs, kids crafts, and other family activities. Birding, boating, tram, paddleboarding, and kayaking activities fill the weekend. The 30th annual celebration begins on Friday, October 12, with Get Outside Day and continues on Saturday, October 20, with Conservation Art Day. Federal Duck Stamp Winners, other artists, cartooning, and a Refuge photography tram tour will highlight a day devoted to Jay Norwood Darling’s legacy as the first duck stamp artist and Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist.
