EDUCATION

 

 

 

Our organization works with schools in promoting salmon education in the classroom. Under the
Salmonids in the Classroom program, we provide fertilized eggs to participating classrooms in
Langley School District elementary schools. Our organization has been involved with schools
since 1992.

Students can visit our hatchery to release the fry they raised in the classroom into our stream
typically in April. Teachers can arrange  a tour of the hatchery operation
and the stream area. Students have the opportunity to learn how salmon are raised in a working
hatchery and to observe their life cycle in a natural stream setting.

If you are a teacher of a class participating in the Salmonids in the Classroom program and
would like to book a date and time for a guided tour and fry release, please contact us at
nicomekl.h@gmail.com

Please note, under present Covid circumstances, tours are not being provided and fry releases are not taking place at the hatchery grounds  

If you are a teacher who has not previously been involved in the Salmonids in the Classroom
program and would like to learn more, please visit the website
