Smith-Root employees Tammy Lucas and Yale Smith were pleased to join the 1st Scappoose Bay Watershed Fair along with other local vendors held at the Scappoose Bay Marina June 16th, 2012. The fair’s purpose was to raise funds for the non-profit, non-regulatory organization and promote awareness for residents in the area.

Many local residents had no idea what the Scappoose Watershed was or their work to educate, advise and assist landowners in the watershed to improve the quality of their community’s creeks and natural areas. 

The fair was a fun filled day for the whole family, which consisted of free canoe tours of the bay as well as music, pony rides, raffles, a treasure hunt and much more!

The success of the Watershed Fair could turn into an annual event bringing families and the community together to preserve the future health of the Scappoose Bay.
