Orca Salmon arrive & they are hatching gloriously!

Orca has invited salmon eggs back for the 3rd year in a row. We get them from the Issaquah salmon hatchery and explore some great curriculum about salmon life cycles, habitats, and Native American history. This project is always a big highlight of the school year. In a few months we will carry the baby salmon down to Seward Park and release them into Lake Washington. But for now they are just breaking out of their egg sacks and becoming little “alevin”. Drop by the front of the main office and check them out!

We use this great curriculum for some of our activities- www.fs.fed.us/outdoors/…/Curricula/Salmon-Curriculum.PDF

They are hatching!

250 Coho salmon eggs!
