Festival Focuses on Resource Stewardship

Posted Monday, September 10, 2018

Join us at the Skagit River Salmon Festival from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 8, at Edgewater Park in west Mount Vernon as we celebrate the Skagit River and what it means to our community.

Established in 2012, the Skagit River Salmon Festival is a diverse partnership between local, state and federal agencies, Tribal communities, local utilities, businesses and non-profit organizations focused on inspiring conservation of the Skagit River, its rich cultural history and abundant natural resources.

“The Skagit River is the source for almost 50 percent of the water supplied to the Judy Reservoir system, which serves the cities of Burlington, Sedro-Woolley and Mount Vernon," Community Relations Manager Kevin Tate said.

"The Festival is the perfect opportunity for our communities to learn about the resources found in the Skagit watershed and how to be good stewards."
