Salmon Release

 

Last week we bid farewell to the chinook salmon we have been raising in our classrooms since late October. We had hoped to have our students participate in releasing all of our fish in Chehalem Creek where we conducted our outdoor school project. It was very muddy there from the previous week’s rains, so we changed our game plan a bit. Mrs. Willcuts and Mr. Evers released one-third of the fish in Chehalem Creek, and we had our students release the remaining two-thirds in the Willamette River at Roger’s Landing. As Ewing Young Park develops, we hope to have greater access to the creek during the winter months for projects, and perhaps our students can be a part of that process.
