Do you know what a group of owls are called or whether snakes have toes?
These are just a few of the interesting and unusual facts that will be available at the first annual Foothills Day on May 11, 2013. Organized by the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust, Foothills Day celebrates the beauty of the Wenatchee Valley while offering a wide variety of fun outdoor activities for young and old. The event is adjacent to the Wentachee Performing Arts Center and runs from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm.
There will be trail runs, nature hikes, a mountain biking film, and adult and children's art shows. Visitors can also enjoy opening day at the Wenatchee Valley Farmer’s Market where they can shop for local fruits, veggies, and crafts.
Those who stop by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service booth will learn how learn how to make quail calls, compost refuse (including doggie waste), make bee houses and create a pollinator garden. They can also learn more about Team Naturaleza (dedicated to promoting nature classes in the Hispanic community) while listening to a wide variety of live music.
By the way, a group of owls is called a parliament but you will have to attend to find out if snakes have toes.
