A Watershed Festival? No, Really!

Water is on the mind of nearly every person in the Greater Des Moines Metro...and across the state. Eight years ago ecologist Darren Fife started a clean-up project along Walnut Creek a small stream that travels from rural to urban and empties in the Raccoon River. That event, with just a dozen or so people, has now evolved into a two day festival scheduled for October 6th and 7th in Clive and Windsor Heights, Iowa. This passion then started Darren on his mission to create a new business EcoSource Iowa. Here Darren talks about the Walnut Creek 8th Annual Watershed Festival and what you can expect.
