Rivers Festival

  Sometimes all it takes is a fish and you've got a festival. California salmon and how to save them is the focus of the 17th annual Rivers Festival Feb. 7 to 9 at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. Keynote speeches by Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., writer and environmentalist Tim Palmer, and Cadillac Desert author Marc Reisner will anchor three days of lectures and workshops. When festival-goers tire of talk, there will be a panoply of river-related gear to purchase or gawk at. Admission starts at $5. For complete registration and workshop details call Ethan Winston at 510/215-0101 or visit the Rivers Festival web site at http://www.adventuresports.
