Salmon released! Happy Earth Day!

From egg to alevin to frye to smolt, the salmon came a long way at Orca over the course of the last few months. They are finally swimming in Lake Washington, out of the smelly Orca tank, and into new beginning. If only we all could be so lucky to have such an amazing rebirth! The excitement was on par with a mini-riot as classes walked to Seward Park and cycled through the salmon release area. With only 100+ salmon to release, we had to have groups of students grab a cup and scoop one out to release. As it was Earth Day today, the middle school classes even grabbed garbage bags and cleaned up the park. Environmental stewards to the max!
