The Celebration will offer folks the chance to listen to talks on local amphibians and turtles, hear from a local landowner working on streamside restoration of his property, find out about invasive species in our waterways, and learn about conservation activities involving local youth. Come make native plant seed balls to take home and listen to music by “The Other Guys” while checking out displays from local and state organizations. You can even support your local Boy Scout Troop #258 by purchasing a bite to eat from their BBQ!

Best of all will be the opportunity to take your photo with the largest Chinook salmon in the park! Claudia Chinook has newly painted murals inside her belly and a fresh coating on her scales. She will remind us that May 21 is World Fish Migration Day, connecting fish, rivers, and people! Conservation activities including access to habitat and working toward clean water are good for fish and people alike!

The following partners make this event possible: Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District, Molalla River Watch, Pudding River Watershed Council, the Molalla River Alliance, Canby Historical Society, Oregon State Marine Board, Wilderness International, and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
