See ya salmon!

It’s been an amazing last few months w/ our salmon. There were only 5 casualties (fairly low) and they are as big and strong as I have ever seen here at Orca. Our former science teacher Katherine Law and I revived this salmon program 9 years ago by hustling to different schools to gather the necessary equipment. We have released well over 1000+ salmon since then!

We are set for our release tomorrow w/ most of the school walking down to Seward Park and being part of this fabulous ritual. Yesterday was a blast in the sun when we did our annual salmon obstacle course…
