For the 13th year in a row, outdoor enthusiasts of all ages are invited to participate in the annual Bear River Celebration and Free Fishing Day Saturday, June 7, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Logan’s Willow Park West, 500 W. 700 South.

 

Hosted by Utah State University Water Quality Extension, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and the City of Logan Environmental Department, the gathering celebrates Utah’s free fishing day and features a variety of learning activities about water conservation, water quality, wildlife, recycling, energy and the Bear River Watershed.

 

“This is a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy the outdoors together and, in the process, learn about the Bear River Watershed,” says Tiffany Kinder, an educational outreach specialist with USU Water Quality Extension and 2012 graduate of USU’s master’s program in watershed science.

 

The annual event was named the 2013 Utah Environmental Education Program of the Year by the Utah Society of Environmental Education.

 

Participants of all ages can enjoy free fishing at the park pond. Fishing equipment and instruction are available for first-time anglers.

 

Interactive exhibits feature live animals native to the Bear River Watershed, fly tying, face painting, a display by USU’s Intermountain Herbarium, learning activities about aquatic bugs, historical reenactments by the Old Ephraim Mountain Men, a demonstration of how rivers and streams are formed, an explanation of fish life cycles and learning about the importance of water quality.

 

Logan’s Home Depot will provide nature crafts.

 

Youth participants will receive a Bear River Adventure Passport and the first 300 kids to complete the passport by visiting all learning stations will earn their choice of a free T-shirt or water bottle.

 

For information, contact USU Water Quality Extension at 435-797-2580 or visit the Bear River Celebration website.
