CREEKfest gave the community the opportunity to see hawks and barn owls, listen to some blues music, watch the world premiere of a short movie about our beloved Cabin John Creek, and learn from a myriad of exhibitors about how to best improve and protect the Creek. A big thanks to the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection and the Chesapeake Bay Trust for the grant that helped to financially support the event.
