Festival Latino


Marys River Watershed Council, the Institute for Applied Ecology, and Benton Soil and Water Conservation District hosted a booth at Festival Latino 2019.


A blend of cultures came together on Sunday, September 15th for Festival Latino at Monteith Park in Albany. The annual event featured musical and dancing performances, food specialties from Mexico and South America, and a community resource fair. Marys River Watershed Council was there along with the Institute of Applied Ecology and the Benton Soil and Water Conservation District to host a “spin the wheel” game about watersheds and birds as well as a bird coloring activity for kids.┬áThe custom-made beaver costume also made an appearance!

Despite the wet and muddy conditions, attendees were in good spirits as they took in the festivities!

We hope you can join the Council next year at Festival Latino 2020!
