The Bandon Public Library has joined with several organizations and individuals to create a series of workshops, classes and events this spring and summer.  “The Big Fish Vision invites Coos County residents and  visitors to explore, learn and create in honor of the salmon, marshes, and streams.”, says Vicki Affatati, local artist conducting one of the workshops.

Here is the calendar of events for March and April for The Big Fish Vision.  More may be added at later dates.
