Land, trees, people, and bees. Creeks, fogs, fishes, and dogs. We are all part of the watershed!

Come on out to the West County Watershed Day and Art Show. “We are going to present a great, free day of fun, rock-solid information, and most importantly, an opportunity for the entire watershed community to get together and celebrate,” says Kurt Erickson of Occidental Arts and Ecology Center.
Events will include games, a parade, poetry, food, live music, an art sale, kids’ watershed posters, videos, and speakers. Learn about wildlife-friendly fencing, Sudden Oak Death, watershed restoration, native plants, water rights and responsibilities, and more.
Saturday, May 18, 10am-4pm at Salmon Creek Middle School, 1935 Bohemian Hwy. (between Freestone and Occidental). Also, be sure not to miss the Watershed Stomp, Friday, May 17, at 8:30pm at the Powerhouse Brewery in Sebastopol. Admission is $10. Tickets are available at the door.
