Ponderosa Watershed Committee’s Watershed Fair is Aug. 25

Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

The Ponderosa Watershed Committee is holding their 2nd annual Watershed Fair to celebrate the Upper Columbia River on Saturday, Aug. 25.

This year’s fair is much expanded from last year, and there will be both very informative and a lot fun! There will be experts from county, state and federal agencies on hand, as well as local organizations that share a common concern about the future health of this important watershed.

There will be seminars, information booths, hands on learning experiences a BBQ salmon lunch and a hosted river float. Things that people can learn at the fair include; how habitat restoration is helping to save salmon, what food trout eat, by wading the river, how to learn in harmony with the bears that inhabit the forests in our area, and even some essential river floating safety tips.

There is something here for those who want to learn more about all the elements that make this watershed work, right on down to fun that the kids will enjoy. Bring the whole family to this one.

The event will be held at the Ponderosa Community Clubhouse from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information contact Doug Pendleton at DougPen@nwi.net.
