Despite smoky conditions in Leavenworth there were still plenty of attendees at the Wenatchee River Salmon Festival this weekend. I was impressed with the amount and quality of the educational events featured at this year’s Salmonfest. I was able to check out some of the other activities and discovered that before this weekend I knew next to nothing about salmon. Did you know that millions of years ago salmon where ten feet long, had fangs, and weighed over 500 lbs!?

While demonstrating healthy watersheds at Rolling Rivers I was reminded that our Picture the Wenatchee photo contest is ending soon! If you didn’t already know, Picture the Wenatchee is our watershed stewardship campaign that promotes healthy rivers and streams. By pledging your support you can receive a free watershed care package! Of course the real prize will be the healthy rivers and streams you’ll be a part of creating. The photo contest will end on October 1st so if you’ve been meaning to submit those great photos you’ve taken, now is the time! We are still accepting entries in all categories but are especially in need of “Agriculture” photos.
