The River Never Sleeps Festival was an amazing celebration of the vibrant living ecosystem we share in. Our 10th Festival was held on May 7th 2017.
Over 57 persons contributed to the educational opportunities of the community booths. From streamkeepers, salmonid enhancement groups to the environment, First Aid and boating safety, we had a wide range and enthusiastic group of participants.
29 volunteers from Fanny Bay Salmonid Enhancement worked to bring a spectacular festival together that was attended by over 500 persons!
The festival begins with the scenic trail into the hatchery:
