Live in Ashland and go to the salmon festival.The preservation of nature and the support of the migrating salmon are important to many who live in Ashland. Come join others from the community for the 12th annual Bear Creek Salmon Festival, which will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2016 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. The theme for this free event is “Stewardship Flows Downhill.” Bring the whole family to the festival at North Mountain Park, as there will be something everyone will enjoy. Explore interactive exhibits that help everyone better understand how to improve salmon and wildlife habitat near Ashland. There are many things residents can do on their own Ashland property to be good stewards of the watershed.

Ashland Property Owners Enjoy All Things Salmon

In addition to all of the educational opportunities, there will also be such activities as fly and spin-casting, salmon cooking demonstrations, a salmon story tent, and a spiral labyrinth. Stop and listen to some live music as you take in the festival and also grab a bite to eat from the Sultan’s Delight food cart. Anyone interested in giving back to the community and volunteering at this event can contact Lori Ainsworth at 541.552.2264. There is much to do and volunteers can help with festival activities, set up, and clean up. All who live in Ashland are invited to come, have fun, and learn ways to make a difference.
