Napa, Calif. – The Bureau of Reclamation announces a new exhibit at Lake Berryessa’s Dufer Point Visitor Center. Wild About Wetlands is an exhibit on loan from, and developed by, the Effie Yeaw Nature Center in Carmichael, California.

The exhibit shows the importance of wetlands in filtering water and providing a location for habitat and recreation. In addition to several exhibit panels, the loan includes interactive children’s games to occupy visitors who are young or young-at-heart. The exhibit will remain on display at Lake Berryessa until September 2017.

The Dufer Point Visitor Center is currently open from 12 to 3 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday, except for Christmas Day. The Visitor Center is located at 5520 Knoxville Road, Napa CA 94558.

Park Rangers are available at the Visitor Center to answer questions about natural resources, recreational opportunities, wildlife and the area’s history. Brochures, maps, trail guides and other educational information are available free of charge.

Please contact the Park Rangers at 707-966-2111 ext. 113 for more information about park exhibits, events and programs.
