Port Susan Snow Goose & Birding Festival > Farming and Snow Geese
Farms and open space provide a critical habitat for wintering Snow Geese and Swans. The unobstructed visibility in farm fields offers flocks protection from stalking animals such as dogs and coyotes. Some of the best viewing of large flocks of geese can be seen in local fields.
Please remember that these are working farms, and observe the following courtesies:
If you are unsure if you can (or have permission) to enter an area - JUST SAY NO - more than likely you do not. This approach is your safest and the courteous choice. Remember, the fields/property that the Snow Geese are on is someones home and livelyhood.
