We will host the 11th annual Watershed Festival on Friday, June 26 at the Wallowa County Fairgrounds from 11 am to 4 pm. The Watershed Festival gives families a chance to connect with and learn about organizations serving the county while enjoying outdoor summer fun. Over 25 organizations, like the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, come together to share the work they do with the community as well as provide family activities like soil painting, birdhouse building, and flower dissecting. A scavenger hunt will send kids searching for facts about Wallowa County and reward fact-finders with a prize for completing the search. Kids can get up close and personal with birds of prey, make mini-tepees, paint a watershed and construct their own birdhouse.
Wallowa Valley Music Alliance will provide local musicians get us dancing and singing along too. Don't miss this family-fun summer event!
