Salmon in the Schools

Salmon in the Schools is a hands-on, exploratory learning program where elementary students learn about the life cycle of salmon, stewardship, and healthy ecosystems by raising coho salmon from eggs in their classroom. NOSC delivers in-class lessons and hosts a learning-packed field trip where students release the young salmon fry in a local stream. For the 3-4 months that the students care for the salmon, these fish spark learning opportunities throughout all parts of the classroom.
