Salmon in the Classroom Volunteer Training #1

February 27 , 1:00 pm 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.

If you are interested in supporting Salmon in the Classroom this year as a volunteer, please sign up for one of the two upcoming trainings using the green button below:

CLASSROOM TRAINING: Tuesday, February 27th from 1-3pm @ Kitsap Regional Library-Silverdale (3650 NW Anderson Hill Rd.)

FIELD TRAINING: Saturday, March 2nd from 10am-12pm @ Clear Creek Trail (Silverdale Bark Park Parking Lot, 11601 Silverdale Way NW)

Both trainings cover the same material, no need to attend both. Please note that all volunteers must attend one training and consent to a background check.
