Learning about Stream Restoration

Today we were privileged to have Jeff Fisher, a habitat monitoring coordinator from the Freshwater Trust in Portland, visit with our classes about stream habitat and restoration. His visit was made possible through the Oregon Connections site, which helps connects STEM industry professionals with K-12 schools. This is an area we have wished to tie together with our salmon and trout hatching programs for quite some time. Jeff shared many of his experiences in stream restoration and provided some great insight for students in how their current learning could lead to careers involving fish habitat, stream restoration, river engineering or a number of other related occupations. Students also engaged in a river design activity. It was a great learning experience for our students and we hope to work with Jeff on other projects in the future.
