Visit the southeastern corner of the state for the annual Fall Festival of Foliage and Feathers. Experts guide you to see owls, “champion big trees,” and a variety of other birds and wildlife. It’s tough to choose among so many enticing activities. There are more than twenty guided tours of wildlife areas, trees and birds—even the valley’s wineries. There is an hour-long urban forest walking tour and a four-hour tour of the McNary National Wildlife Refuge where the trails include a wheelchair-accessible walkway. The slough teems with waterfowl—as many as 80,000 Canada geese and 120,000 ducks winter at McNary and many have begun to arrive by now. In the evenings huge numbers of Canada geese fly into the refuge in continuous V-formations, making a raucous honking noise and quite a spectacle.
