Clay County Wetland Tour - Spring Wing Ding

As part of the Nebraska Rainwater Basin, the Clay Center Area has been designated as part of the vanishing wetlands of the United States. Now the bottleneck of the Central flyway, millions of game birds use these marshes on their migrations. There is a wild bird and animal observatory, with a viewing tower, located three miles south of Clay Center.

The Spring Wing Ding celebrates the magnificent spring migration of geese and ducks that settle into our wonderful rain water basin in Clay County. This festival will occur the first weekend in March with many bus tours to local marshes, educational seminars, an evening banquet/wildlife auction and a noon cookout held in the midst of thousands of cackling snow, blue and whitefront geese.

In past years we have had over 500 people from all over the country take part, and the number grows every year. Wildbird Magazine rands this as one of the top 15 areas to visit in the United States. The Nebraska Game & Parks Commission calls the Clay Center Spring Wing Ding the area's premier celebration of waterfowl migration.
