Water Festival

The Pend POWFLogo2Oreille Water Festival for all Bonner County 5th Graders!

The Water Festival is a two-day outdoor event for over 400 fifth-graders in Bonner County, where students learn about local river and watershed resources.  The Water Festival is preceded by in-class visitations and a traveling watershed education trunk to prepare students for concepts they will learn in greater detail at the Festival.  The  Water Festival is held annually at Riley Creek Campground in Laclede in mid-May.  The Panhandle Chapter of Trout Unlimited is proud to be offering both volunteer time and funding support for the 2017 Water Festival.

You can support the Water Festival is by attending the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) ), sponsored by North 40 Fly Shop and Panhandle Chapter of Trout Unlimited.  The proceeds from this fundraising event will be split between Trout Unlimited and the Water Festival.

Bonner Soil & Water Conservation District is the host of the Pend Oreille Water Festival.  Bonner SWCD has a long history of participation in the Water Festival and a mission that includes supporting conservation education for the youth of Idaho – it’s a perfect match.
