Fall foliage fun festival

The Zumbro Watershed Project (ZWP) held the eighth annual Fall Foliage Fun Festival in Oronoco Saturday.

Education coordinator for the ZWP. Kevin Strauss said, "It gives a chance to invite people out to get on the river and lake and learn about our river and some of the challenges its having right now and some ways they can help keep it cleaner."

The ZWP celebrated a day of learning with boat rides, food and lots of fun. A large group of residents from surrounding communities came to participate in the fun. There was live music and a magician for the kids.

During the boat ride passengers got a chance to see all the fall colors, animal habitats and learned about how keep the water clean and safe.

Strauss said they are broadening where they teach about the lake, "Doing talks in cities and rural communities just about all the things you can do to keep the water on the land and slow it down."
