Tsalila Festival - A year round program that connects people with the history and environment of the Umpqua River watershed. The Umpqua SWCD contributes to Tsalila Education Days which teaches children grades 1-6 about natural and cultural resources regarding the Umpqua River watershed. Each year the Umpqua SWCD hosts a fun, hands-on educational booth for 3rd grade students aptly named “The Bug Zone” where the Umpqua SWCD teaches students about benthic macro invertebrates or water bugs describing why these bugs are good for the ecosystem.
