Castle Joe Books owner Gwen Lips and I spent a number of weekends finishing the sturgeon and kokanee mural that now graces the wall at her book store.
It was a fun project for everyone concerned — particularly all the kids who painted rocks and kokanee and those who also painted wooden sturgeon during the North Columbia Environmental Society’s activities on Earth Day. Many of those painted sturgeons will be mounted on the wall as well.
Many thanks to the NCES and Castle Joe Books for sponsoring this community project and a special thank you to all the children who helped out.
You can see the painting, of course, at Castle Joe Books and here are photos of the mural being mounted by Travis Hunt and Rory Luxmoore:
