Community Movie Series
CCFEG sponsors a traveling free community movie series that shows salmon and fisheries related films to our local communities. These films are usually followed by a relevant discussion by local scientists and leaders. We hope events like these can help get the public more involved with the various aspects of salmon restoration that we are involved in. Check out our events page to see when the next movie night is coming to your area.
We would like to thank Matt Cooper, Peter Burgoon, Conor Giorgi, Ken Bevis, John Crandall, Kevin Van Bueren, Keith Kistler, Jon Arterburn, and Craig Nelson for their presentations as part of our winter 2013 movie series. Movie Series General Flyer.pdf
Kids Fishing Days
CCFEG assists at Kids' Fishing Day events at the Leavenworth and Winthrop National Fish Hatcheries. Kids' Fishing Days provide an opportunity for local children to learn the basics of fishing and ethical natural resource stewardship, as well as the chance to catch their very own hatchery fish.
Methow Valley Salmon Celebration
In 2011, CCFEG participated in and was a sponsor of the first annual Methow Valley Salmon Celebration. The Salmon Celebration is a free event which honors the teamwork and community support involved in restoring the salmon to the Methow. During the day CCFEG staff showed visitors the importance of riparian health to steady salmon runs through an interactive watershed simulation activity. CCFEG also ran an educational booth during the evening portion of the event.
Wenatchee River Salmon Festival
The Salmon Festival, or Salmonfest, is an outdoor education event that connects youth and families to nature in a fun and entertaining way by helping them learn about our natural resources and the incredible environment in which we live. CCFEG assiss in a number of educational programs at Salmonfest, including the Kids in the Creek field program and Rolling River watershed display, and also runs an education and outreach booth.
In 2009 the CCFEG was able to partner with the Colville Confederated Tribes (CCT) to provide a cost share funding opportunity for several school districts to attend Salmonfest. Those districts were able to have the transportation costs for the students covered by CCFEG and CCT. Tonasket Elementary School, Oroville Elementary School, and the Pascal Sherman Indian School benefited from this partnership.
Picture the Wenatchee
CCFEG supports Picture the Wenatchee and their effort to reduce pollution and improve water quality in the Wenatchee River and its tributaries through communication, education and action.
