If you see a 14-foot tall Chinook salmon travelling down the highway, follow it to Camp Adams and the Milk Creek Watershed Celebration! Claudia the Chinook will be the guest of honor at the September 27, 2014 event being held at Camp Adams in Molalla.

Claudia is large enough to hold 7-8 adults. Inside her cavernous mouth and body is a painted mural that includes the complete life-cycle of Chinook salmon, along with paintings of other fish, animals, and plants that can be found in a healthy watershed.

Once you have had the chance to visit with Claudia, enjoy the many interesting displays provided by local groups including the Molalla Historical Museum. Listen to live music performed by local musicians, The Other Guys. Throughout the day, there will be presentations on Milk Creek restoration projects and the local fish population. And don’t miss out on creating your own fish print and wearable nature conservation button. Bring the entire family and come on down — the event is FREE!

Camp Adams provides a unique setting to enjoy the great outdoors, so be sure to wear your hiking boots and join in on the nature walks being led morning and afternoon. There’s something for everyone at this community event!

Milk Creek is a beautiful stream that starts northeast of Colton and travels past Union Mills, within a couple of miles of Molalla, through Mulino, and eventually empties into the Molalla River just outside of Canby. It is home to many native fish and has been the focus for a number of organizations that have partnered to improve fish habitat and improve water quality. This community social is a celebration of the wildlife, water, and great people that live in and around Milk Creek!

The event is supported by funding from Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, Oregon Department of Transportation, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, Clackamas County Soil and Water Conservation District, and volunteer assistance from Molalla River Watch Watershed Council.
