Watershed Exploration Days is a full calendar of events aimed at raising awareness about Watersheds. Activities range from salmon viewing to rain harvesting to river clean-up and tree planting events. Festivals, hikes, activities and classes take place at various locations across Jackson County and run into the late fall. Participating organizations include many local agencies and organizations who are actively engaged in watershed education and issues.
Throughout the late summer and fall, volunteer community organizations, educators and other groups are encouraged to join in to learn about the importance of watersheds at the grassroots and community levels. All are welcome to come and explore the natural wonders of our watershed with fun tours, workshops and events. Most of the activities are free and open to the public, though several of the classes and tours require pre-registration.
