Bear Creek Stewardship Day (New for the fall 2017 – combines the Fall clean-up and the Kids and Creek Event)

Come celebrate all things Bear Creek at the first annual Bear Creek Day!  Bear Creek Day welcomes Fall by combining the annual Clean-up event and the education fair Kids and Creeks (held at Bear Creek Park).  Come learn and volunteer to help clean up along the creek and learn about Bear Creek and participate in fun, hands-on activities including salmon dissection, collecting stream macro-invertebrates, and viewing migrating and spawning salmon!

We are also looking for sponsors and volunteers for the events.  Email for more information.
