Salmon in the Classroom
Bring science to life at your school with Salmon in the Classroom!
Each year we help over 50 teachers raise coho salmon at their schools in classroom aquariums. As students take care of their salmon throughout the school year, they engage in project-based learning about salmon life cycle, biology, and habitat. By the time students release their salmon into local streams at the end of the school year, they feel connected to their salmon and personally invested in protecting them.

Salmon in the Classroom is funded by Clark Public Utilities and managed by Columbia Springs. It was initially developed in 1991 by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to provide opportunities for environmental education. WDFW continues to provide the fish for the program.
