The Watershed Festival is an annual celebration featuring art, discovery, music and family fun. This year’s festival will include a number of displays from local organizations, walking tours, NatureMapping, the Insect Extravaganza, a salmon barbecue and other great coffee and food options.

Congratulations to this year’s Nisqually Poster Contest winner, Grace Kim, a 6th grader from Cougar Mountain Middle School! Check out the winner, plus all of the other entries, at this year’s festival. The theme for this year’s contest was “Migratory Birds of the Nisqually,” in honor of the 100th anniversary of the International Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Want to show off your singing voice? Compete in the 2nd annual Nisqually Idol, a musical competition for people 18 and younger. All contestants must pre-register with Sheila Wilson. Call or email at: 360.561.0203,

Be sure to bring your own t-shirt to the festival to make a fish print with a Nisqually salmon! That and other activities will be part of the day-long celebration of nature at the 27th Annual Nisqually Watershed Festival!
