Snow Goose Festival of the Pacific Flyway

Snow Geese by Mike Peters.

As Snow Goose Festival participants walked by our River Partners booth last January, they would direct their eyes to the backdrop aerial display of the “J Levee project” on the west side of the Sacramento River.

River Partners was recently awarded a contract to complete large-scale riparian restoration work on the river-side of a new levee which protects Hamilton City from flooding. People were interested in seeing the line of the old J levee and where the new levee runs and the areas outlining some 1,480 acres to be restored in various preparation and planting phases by River Partners. River Partners is a proud sponsor of The Snow Goose Festival of the Pacific Flyway, held annually in Chico.

Executive Assistant Mona Dagy staffs the River Partners booth at the Snow Goose Festival.

This year’s festival boasted record numbers – attendees, bird species seen (161) and marathon one-day bird count total of 118 species! Please check out the website http://snowgoosefestival.org/ for more information and to learn about the 2018 festival.
