Sturgeon Festival

Join the annual Celebration of Columbia River Ecosystems. Every year the Water Resources Education Center recognizes sturgeon and Columbia River ecosystems on the third Saturday in September. This free, fun family event offers opportunities for the entire family to learn about fish and other animals in and around the Columbia River. The festival will start off with a breathtaking Birds of Prey Show and will wrap up with an amazing Live Reptile Show. Other highlights include the popular fish dissections and colorful Eartha the Ecological Clown. This is a partnership event with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
