Celebrating and sharing our local watershed!

Vancouver Lake

“My grand daughter participated in this. She loves science and nature and wants to be a marine biologist. She had an awesome time on this field trip and I am sure she will be talking about it for a long time to come. Thanks from the both of us to everyone who had a part in making this event happen for these students.”

- Luana Trende Nery

The 2013 Columbia River Watershed Festival  was  held on September 26th and 27th at Vancouver Lake Regional Park. The Columbia River Watershed Festival is offered to a pre-selected group of 4th grade students from Clark County each year. Over the course of two days over 800 4th graders enjoy natural resource-themed presentations and activities on topics such as recycling, water conservation, and local plants and animals.

Thank you to all of our important community partners that supported this event! Clark County Dept. of Environmental Services, Clark Public Utilities, City of Vancouver, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and all of the volunteers who made this years event so wonderful!
