Join our students as we take a closer look at how life begins as a Chinook salmon! Each year, participating schools receive about 100 salmon eggs from the Benton Conservation District as part of the "Salmon in the Classroom" program. This program is designed to help educate students about conservation and stewardship of our natural resources. Students will learn about the anatomy of salmon and a salmon's life cycle, and will discuss ecosystem changes and the threat of invasive species. Students will observe as the eggs hatch and develop until finally, in May, the surviving salmon fry will be released into the Columbia River.
