Tour Tuesday to new E. Fork wier

The Hood River Watershed Group will be holding its annual picnic July 23 from 5 p.m. until dusk. As usual, the picnic will take place at Tollbridge Park right across the street from EFID’s diversion facility.

The picnic will start with a visit to the construction site to see progress on the fish ladder and weir construction. This will be a rare chance to see a major in-stream project under construction.

For more information about the picnic and tour, contact Cindy Thieman at 541-386-6063 or cindy@hoodriverswcd.org.

A wide array of partners have helped EFID with technical assistance and construction funding, including the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board ($403,360), Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs ($1,675,000), and the Hood River Watershed Group (grant writing and technical assistance).

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
