Don Kraege, waterfowl section manager for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, has designated the festival in Stanwood as the main venue for Baranyuk’s presentation, a lecture he’ll be giving throughout the region.

Kraege says the presentation includes stunning slides and video of Wrangel Island and its rich nesting grounds.

The festival includes art shows and demonstrations, musical entertainment, activities for kids, guided tours, speakers, vendors and food, including breakfasts and lunches to benefit the Stanwood Area Historical Society and the Safe Harbor Free Clinic.

Sno-Isle Libraries presents a “Puppet Play: Lessons From The Geese” with the Stanwood children’s librarian at 1 p.m. Sunday at the other festival center, the Four Springs House &Lake Preserve, 585 Lewis Lane, Camano Island.

The play features Snow Goose, Canada Goose and a surprise visitor or two. Stick around to fold an origami flapping bird.
