Join the Fun at Montana Outdoor Science School’s 21st Annual Watershed Festival & Fishing Derby on Saturday, June 22nd

Friday Jun. 14th, 2019

Don’t miss Montana Outdoor Science School’s Watershed Festival & Fishing Derby on June 22nd at the Bozeman Fish Technology Center! A free, fun-filled event for people of all ages, the festival brings together local non-profit organizations, and other exhibitors to promote an awareness, understanding, and appreciation of Montana’s beautiful watersheds through dynamic, hands-on activities and science-based educational experiences. The event runs from 9am to 3pm and is free to the public.

The Fishing Derby allows children up to age 12 to catch and keep two fish. The staff of the Fish Technology Center will clean the fish and put them in a bag of ice. Face-painting, live raptors, stream tables, and the infamous rubber duck races will keep the whole family busy throughout the event. Food will be available for purchase. There is a free shuttle from the Fairgrounds parking lot on Oak St. starting at 8:45 Saturday morning.

“We’re fortunate to partner with the US Fish and Wildlife Service to provide this event as a kick-off to summer each year and are always grateful to Imerys Talc who sponsor our event unfailingly year after year. Our staff and volunteers are excited about this year’s festival and can’t wait to share it with the community. What better way to celebrate our Montana watersheds than by learning more about them?”
