Students Visit the Adam’s River Sockeye Run

IMG_1485On Tuesday, October 9th, 65 of our grade 3-7 students made the trip to the shores of the Adams River to witness the amazing spawning sockeye spectacle.  After taking in two mini lessons lead by Oceans and Fisheries biologists, our students explored the shoreline and trails, watching the Salmon prepare their Redds, laying their eggs and defending their spawning grounds.  We were fortunate to enjoy fantastic weather.  This hands on learning opportunity was made possible because we received a $580 Go Grant this fall.

Students continue to learn about the sockeye lifecycle as part of their science studies at the school.  Our three primary classes will travel to the Kingfisher Interpretive Center this spring to release the salmon we raise.IMG_1530
