Salmon in the Classroom Field Trips

March 11 , 9:00 am March 28 , 3:00 pm

Each January, elementary students from classrooms around Kitsap County begin tending salmon eggs, donated by the Suquamish Tribe, in their classroom tanks. While the baby salmon grow from egg to alevin to fry, students learn about the salmon life cycle, their habitat, and the impacts of human activity. 

In March, these classes attend field trips to Clear Creek in Silverdale where they work with local volunteers to learn about habitat, test water quality, and discover the many kinds of stream bugs that live in local streams, before releasing their salmon fry to begin their journey downstream.

The sign-up link for Salmon in the Classroom Field Trips will only be shared with volunteers who have attended a volunteer training and consented to a background check.
