In The Classroom
Bring Science to Life at Your School
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.
