On Sunday many gathered for the final day of the Snow Goose Festival of the Pacific Flyaway.

Many made their way to the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge in Willows to see the geese before they continue their journey south.

Those on the tour came across two different kinds of ducks waterfowl, three different species of geese and even a few shorebirds.

Michael Denega has been volunteering as a tour leader since the very first year of the festival and said it's important to make sure it returns year after year.

"It's trial and tribulation for how the future is going to be for conservation programs, and I think festivals like this are reminders for how important conservation is and it reminds the participants of how important it is," Denega said.

Denega said huge thanks goes out to all of the agencies that worked together to make this annual event a success.

A welcome cooling trend is ahead through Friday, but dry, warmer and windy conditions will bring elevated fire danger this weekend.
