On Monday, more than 2,000 rubber ducks made their way down the Sacramento River in Colusa, from the state park to the Colusa Bridge.
Dozens of volunteers released and recaptured them as a part of the Lions Club’s longstanding tradition, which raises money to send local kids to the Outdoor Education Camp Shady Creek.
A small crowd gathered on the bridge to watch the ducks — and a group of 18 floaters in their midst — cross the finish line.
“When everything is said and done, we’ll be able to make a $1,500 donation toward Shady Creek,” said Lions Club secretary Larry Yegohian. “We want to thank everyone for helping out. We have a lot of boats out here picking up 2,000 ducks. There’s a lot of camaraderie involved.”
