The salmon poster for this year’s Rainforest Festival was created by Grace Wolf.

The 11th annual Rainforest Festival in Petersburg is this week. The theme this year revolves around salmon.

Most of the events run Thursday through Sunday. On Monday, there was a Rainforest Run Half-Marathon. Wednesday from noon to 4:30, people can visit a mushroom expert at the U.S. Forest Service office downtown.
