Just south of Carson City and a short drive from Lake Tahoe lies scenic Carson Valley, a quiet agricultural area that has seen considerable growth, but remains a friendly ranching community. Travelers looking for a place to get away while still staying within minutes of world-class skiing and boarding, hiking, biking, rafting, horseback riding, water sports, wildlife watching and fishing will fall in love with the area. It’s an enchanting mix of natural beauty, historic sightseeing, amazing outdoor recreation and old-fashioned hospitality.
Eagles & Agriculture, the Carson Valley’s celebration of wildlife and ranching, has set its schedule for its thirteenth year of exploring the interaction between eagles and other raptors and the ranches of Carson Valley. Headquartered at the Carson Valley Inn and set for February 19-22, 2015, this year’s lineup includes one new offering along with long time favorites.
Thursday night, the Opening Reception at Holiday Inn Express brings together some of the area's most accomplished wildlife photographers for an exhibit and the kestrel and snowy owl will return as well.
