Today is National Rubber Ducky Day, instead of learning about rubber duckies come learn about Tule Duckies…Otherwise known by their real name: Tule Duck Decoys. Come to the trailhead of the Petroglyph Wall Trail anytime from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM to learn about  Indigenous history, like these artifacts, that are the oldest decoys ever found in the United States.

Additionally see spectacular Indigenous rock art like petroglyphs and pictographs at the end of the Petroglyph Wall trail in the Willow Springs Picnic Area. A Bureau of Land Management Ranger will lead short 15 minutes hikes to this historical site.
