Watershed Festival

Friday event helps families connect with organizations

Wallowa Resources hosts its 10th annual Watershed Festival from 11 a.m. to 

4 p.m. Friday at the Wallowa County Fairgrounds.  

The Watershed Festival gives families a chance to connect with and learn about organizations serving the county while enjoying outdoor summer fun.

“The purpose is to celebrate this amazing place and to provide summer learning opportunities,” said Event Coordinator Amy Busch.

More than 25 organizations ranging from Fishtrap, which promotes “clear thinking and good writing in and about the West,” to Wallowa Avalanche Center come together to share what they do with the community with family-friendly activities. 

Kids can see live birds of prey, build birdhouses, tag fish and make teepees. A scavenger hunt will send kids searching for stickers and facts about Wallowa County to earn a prize upon completion. 

Wallowa Valley Music Alliance hosts the music from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. featuring the Homemade Jam band, Daniel Mark Faller, Carolyn Lochert and Janis Carper, and Sorry, Neighbors.

“Bring a sun hat and sunscreen and a blanket to sit on and enjoy the music,” Busch said.
