Every year the Water Resources Education Center recognizes sturgeon and Columbia River ecosystems. This free, fun family event offers opportunities for the entire family to learn about fish and other animals in and around the Columbia River. Highlights for this year's Sturgeon Festival include the Creature Feature reptile show and fish dissections. Join us from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m., September 15, at the Water Center, 4600 SE Columbia Way. The festival is sponsored by the City of Vancouver's Water Resources Education Center and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Call 360-487-7111 or visit www.cityofvancouver.us/watercenter.
