On Saturday, October 4 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. the 10th annual Bear Creek Salmon Festival will take place at North Mountain Park. This year's theme, "Water Make Every Drop Count for Salmon." 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, a Salmon Poetry Slam (Slam for Salmon and Rap for Water Submit your poem by September 25!) and a Salmon Spiral Labyrinth. A food concession will be provided by Figgy's Food Truck and lively music by Ashland Taiko, Montana Soul and others. Join us at North Mountain Park, 620 N Mountain Avenue in Ashland and help make this a Zero Waste event.
