Columbia River Watershed Festival
Celebrating and sharing our local watershed!
September 26 – 27, 2013
“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.”

The 2012 Columbia River Watershed Festival held at Cottonwood Beach in Washougal was a great success! We were particularly pleased to not only bring back so many great presenters, but to also welcome new presenters including Mo Phillips and World Forestry Center.
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 1,000 4th graders enjoy natural resource-themed presentations and activities on topics such as recycling, water conservation, and local plants and animals.
Community partners that support this event include Clark County Dept. of Environmental Services, Clark Public Utilities, City of Vancouver, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
