Salmon Release

Salmon Release
We’d like to send out a big thank you to Marion County Soil and Water Conservation Clear Grant for providing the funding for our 6th-grade science field trip!

120 students helped release salmon that were raised in our classrooms into the North Santiam River. Students have been learning about the salmon life-cycle, ecosystems, habitat, and water quality. This field trip helped students connect what we have been learning about in class in an outdoor classroom environment. We also traveled to Marion Forks Fish Hatchery to learn how the hatchery works and their role in salmon restoration.
