SALMON IN THE CLASSROOM
Most people do not get to experience the full life cycle of a salmon up close, but with Salmon in the Classroom, this experience gets to to showcase the remarkable transformation of eggs to salmon directly into the school. The partnering curriculum focuses on the life cycle of these unassuming little fish, understanding and measuring water quality, wildlife observation, habitats and watersheds, using real-world mathematical calculations to track fish, predict ideal water temperatures, and estimate fish growth rate. At the end of the program, the students get to release their fingerlings back into the river.
