The Forum celebrated the beginning of October by taking 43 people on a bus tour of the upper Columbia. Starting at a student run fish hatchery in Colville that is a unique partnership between Stevens County, the school district and the WA Department of Fish and Wildlife, participants traveled as far north as Black Sand Beach above Northport.

Said one participant, “The information obtained is always valuable in communicating with others in our community as well as people visiting the area. There is a lot going on behind the scenes people have no idea of and this is a great way to get informed.”

From RI/FS updates to lake operations, participants learned from presentations and networked with each other to consider their common interest: the health and well-being of Lake Roosevelt and the upper Columbia.
