SalmonAid Festival, This Weekend

Who needs LiveAid or FarmAid? Oakland is hosting SalmonAid instead, down at Jack London Square. The festival takes place this Saturday and Sunday, from 12 noon – 7pm.

Music’s the main thing, with 20 bands scheduled on two stages. Of course, there’s food and drink too. Wild salmon is on the menu but it’s legally imported from Alaska.

SalmonAid is organized by West Coast salmon fishermen and conservation groups, working together to reverse major depletions in salmon stocks. From the news, you’re probably aware of the Chinook declines up the Sacramento River.

How to help: Make a donation online or at the event. Also reach your U.S. senator or rep, and lobby for legislation that protects and restores salmon populations.

Yes, save the fish.

Welcome to Montclair, Oakland

We live in the city yet are invaded by nature - or perhaps it's the other way around. Stop by often, and find out what's interesting to 94611 denizens.
