YAY! Salmon released today!

Today was incredible! We released our salmon into the wilds of Lake Washington, from Seward Park. The rain let up and every K-5 CLASS CAME DOWN! It was a chance to say goodbye to these Coho salmon before Spring Break. Almost 100 survived from eggs (out of 160). They looked bigger and healthier this year. Thanks so much to Ms. Katherine for her hard work and dedication in helping me grow these little guys up. Thank you to middle schooler John for helping with setup too.

It was super joyous to see the excitement on the faces of these students as the salmon were released. They studied the salmon life cycle, habitat, predators, native history and more. This was the final cycle that we could be a part of- now we got to let them grow up and be amazing.
