What is there to see in skagit valley during march?

I will be flying into vancouver on 1 mar, spending a couple of days before driving down to Seattle and then driving back to Vancouver and up to whistler on 9 mar to join a couple of friends for a week of snowboarding..

Currently trying to split the time between Vancouver and Seattle and deciding what stops to take for the drives to and from Seattle.

Thinking of stopping by skagit valley to see the tulips but saddened to hear that the tulip festival is only in April.. Just wanted some advice as to whether are there anything produce, markets and flower fields to see during the first week of march? Or what else is there to do then? Thanks!

1. Snow geese. Many thousands overwinter in the Skagit Valley. http://gardyloo.us/20100319_56as.JPG

2. March 1 is a little early, but if it warms up a little next month, you MIGHT get the daffodils which precede the tulips, and which give an excellent show as well. http://gardyloo.us/DSC_0077c.JPG

There are other stops you can make--i wouldn't get hung up on the Skagit Valley. Chuckanut Drive, Deception Pass St Park, Larrabee St Park, Lummi Island, Fairhaven, Mt Baker since you're a boarder...
