RedFish Festival

Here they come again!
It’s time to celebrate the annual return of the Kokanee salmon at Kokanee Creek Nature Centre on Sunday, August 27. Get ready for guided channel spawning tours, dance, food and fun .
This is the sixth annual RedFish Festival presented by the West Kootenay EcoSociety. Guided channel tours run hourly throughout the day. Residents and campers can learn more about these wonderful fish who return year after year, how they are the key to the web of life, and what we can do to protect them.
And, rain or shine, it’s all free!
It wouldn’t be a festival without music, dance, bubbles, kids activities and good food. Local food vendors will be on hand all day for a meal or a treat.

The festival enjoys wide support from its sponsors, BC Parks, Friends of West Kootenay Parks, Columbia Basin Trust, RDCK Area E and F, The Nelson Star, Juice FM and Kootenay Coop Radio.
For more details, as well as a schedule of weekly events at the center is available at www.ecosociety.ca or facebook kokanee creek nature centre.
