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 usually includes a breathtaking birds of prey show and 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.

Check back for details about the 20th Sturgeon Festival planned for 2016!

Watch videos from three previous Sturgeon Festival celebrations. Great video footage of the birds of prey and live critter shows!
