On Saturday, October 3 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the 11th Annual Bear Creek Salmon Festival will take place at North Mountain Park. This admission-free festival will feature all-ages interactive exhibits focusing on healthy salmon habitat in our region and watershed stewardship in our own homes and yards. Regional organizations and businesses will offer a schedule of mini-workshops on topics ranging from water conservation to wildlife. Participants can also enjoy a variety of fun outdoor activities such as fly and spin-casting, exploring Bear Creek, listening to Native American drumming and tasty treats from Peruvian Point (this year's food vendor).

Join us at North Mountain Park, 620 N Mountain Avenue in Ashland and help make this a Zero Waste event. Learn more about Watershed Exploration Days this fall and how you can take part!
