Winter Wildlife Field Day

ASC Projects from the 2021 Winter Wildlife Field Days

March 1-14, 2021 – Virtual Event due to Covid Restrictions

History of WWFD

The seventh annual Winter Wildlife Field Day (WWFD) was different this year because of Covid restrictions. It was a two-week event  instead of one day, and it was not in-person. We hope to resume in-person stations this year, so stay tunes.

Jeremy Felty, an OSU undergraduate student, met with ASC’s Teri Engbring and a William L. Finley NWR manager to discuss having a fun event to highlight winter animals and habitats. There were many spring, summer, and fall events for children, but little happened in the winter. After more than six months of planning, the first annual Winter Wildlife Field Day was held in March 2015 at Finley NWR! No one knew how many participants would come, and it was an amazing success when 300 visitors took part. ASC has led the event in every successive year, drawing 350 in 2016, 450 in 2017, 800 in 2018, and 700 in 2019! Every year, there are more volunteers, partners, and stations to visit. In 2020 and 2021, Finley National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) staff led the organization effort.
