The 19th Annual Snow Goose Festival of the Pacific flyway kicked off its fourth day.

The five-day event celebrates the journey of millions of waterfowl and raptors that visit the northern Sacramento Valley along the Pacific Flyway during winter.

The festival features more than 70 field trips and workshops.

Admission is free, with occasional fees for workshops and tours.

Jennifer Patten, the coordinator of the festival, explains why this event is so well-loved by the community.

“We want to spark that interest in youth especially to carry on the carrying and respect to protect the habitat that we have for these birds. And just to be outside with the birds,” Patten said.

If you would like to check out this festival, it's not too late.

Sunday will be the last day for this north state tradition.
