Did you know you can count the rings on a fish scale to determine its age, much like counting the rings on a tree?

Come learn, play, and celebrate at the Wenatchee River Salmon Festival! The three-day natural resource education event celebrates the return of the salmon to the Wenatchee River and explores the significance of salmon to people of the northwest.

From September 21-23 at the Rocky Reach Discovery Center, an exciting menu of hands-on activities provides all age groups with fun ways to connect humans and the environment. The event has School Days for students on September 21 and 22, and a Community Day open to all on September 23.
