The ocean off the pier will be duck soup this weekend, as thousands of yellow, plastic waterfowl turn the surf gold for charity. All proceeds from the 17th annual Duck-A-Thon races will benefit AltaMed’s Huntington Beach Community Clinic, which offers free and low-cost services for locals in need. An all-volunteer committee, the Duck-A-Thon Support Group makes the event the clinic’s biggest fundraiser.

Most of the decaying bodies were discovered in early July, said Richard Huffnagle, the park's supervising ranger. "The ducks died from botulism as a result of people feeding them garbage like rice, pasta, whole rolls of French bread," Huffnagle said. "These foods are made for human consumption, not for ducks."

They have retrieved every rubber duck that's been tossed off the Huntington Beach Pier for the last 20 years. A pair of skip loaders typically dumps around 4,000 bright yellow artificial waterfowls over the railing for the annual Duck-A-Thon, an event that raises funds for the AltaMed Medical and Dental Group in Huntington Beach. This year's event will run May 17 through 19. A group of about 50 volunteers watch over the bright-yellow artificial waterfowls, making sure that the thousands of bathtub toys make it back to shore, Duck-A-Thon co-chairman Warren Conde said.

For the last two years, Dinneh Estrada has had Baby-Duckness thrust upon her. The 12-year-old Huntington Beach resident volunteered — kind of — to be the mascot at last year's Duck-A-Thon, an annual event that raises funds for AltaMed's Huntington Beach Community Clinic. The organizers already had a Papa Duck mascot who walked the pier during the event and posed for pictures with children, so when they decided to add a Baby Duck, Dinneh quickly got the part. Considering that her mother, brother, sister, aunt and grandparents have all worked on the Duck-A-Thon, she wasn't surprised, but she was happy to chip in. "They were wondering if there could be a Baby Duck," said Dinneh, who is home-schooled.

Everyone likes a baby shower, but the Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center is upping the ante by throwing one for small, fuzzy baby animals. Raccoons, ducklings, squirrels and just-hatched snowy clovers, a bird that looks like a cotton ball on a toothpick, will be on view at the second annual baby shower Saturday, said Jamie Pavlat, a director at the Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center. The center cares for and rehabilitates native wildlife in its Huntington Beach facility. Guests will be able to look at the animals through one-way mirrors, so people can view them, but the animals keep their sense of privacy intact, Pavlat said.

Hundreds lined up for the opportunity to receive an autograph from — and chat with — players Samuel Pahlsson and Brendan Morrison. “When we got here at 1 p.m., there were already a couple hundred people waiting in line,” Ducks staff member Champ Baginski said. “This is definitely the biggest turnout we’ve had in awhile.” “It’s good to get out in the community and meet fans,” said Morrison, who turned down eight other offers to join the Ducks this summer, after playing for Vancouver.
