WENATCHEE RIVER SALMON FESTIVAL CALENDAR ADVISORY FOR “SCHOOL DAYS” September 15 - 16 in Wenatchee

Posted

WENATCHEE - Celebrate the Return of the Salmon, at the 30th Anniversary of the Wenatchee River Salmon Festival.

Our two “School Days” will be ready to host North Central Washington students on September 15 and 16, at Rocky Reach Dam and Discovery Center. Students will explore and experience natural resource education at its finest. Salmon Fest has been the recipient of multiple awards, including, “Best Children’s Program”, by the International Festivals and Events Association.

The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival 2022 is an event devoted to engaging students at a beautiful outdoor venue that is both, educational and fun. Our Festival mission is to connect people of all ages to nature building discovery and appreciation of the diversity and importance of the great outdoors.

The beautiful grounds overlooking the mighty Columbia River are managed by the Chelan PUD’s Rocky Reach Dam. This unique venue will transform into an extraordinary outdoor classroom for this year’s Salmon Fest event. Students will become part of “River Ramble” in a Native American Village, sharing a powerful inter-tribal cultural experience. Learning about nature from top Pacific Northwest natural resource specialists means students will gain first-hand knowledge about fish and wildlife, healthy habitats, watersheds, and much more.

There is magic when Salmon Fest happens. Students receive unique opportunities to be eye-to-eye with salmon, create gyotaku fish prints, explore science and technology, and share in a “Salmon Experience” together.

For more information, swim to our website salmonfest.org, catch us on Facebook, or call 509.548.6662 ext 226 to speak with festival staff.

Salmon Fest is hosted by Friends of NW Hatcheries, Chelan County PUD, USFW.
