Federal Duck Stamp winner Jim Hautman headlines the ninth annual free Conservation Art Day on Saturday, Oct. 21. The event brings the weeklong “Ding” Darling Days 2017 to a close with the duck stamp artist presentations, nature art, cartooning, photography, and art demonstrations. Admission to Wildlife Drive is free all day, and plein-air artists will be painting along the way. The first arrivals to Conservation Art Day score a reusable bag with art supplies. The day’s full schedule is posted at www.dingdarlingdays.com. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, “Ding” Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge, and Tarpon Bay Explorers co-host the event.
