Connecting Classrooms to Nature
Nicomekl Hatchery's Salmon Education Initiative

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:

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:
