Salmon eggs delivered

It’s that time of year again. 6th graders begin to learn about the life cycle of the salmon, both by raising them in their classroom, and going out and seeing the salmon in person on their Salmon Watch field trip to Whitaker Creek. This is a highlight every year for the students, as heard by the cheers and clapping when the eggs arrive in the cooler! Each classroom receives 100 eggs to take care of and watch develop. Once they reach the correct number of temperature units, the salmon are released at a site at Alton Baker Park…and the cycle begins again!
