Coho Salmon Arrival!

It was a glorious day as the baby Coho salmon eggs arrived here at Orca! This annual tradition has happened for the last 12 years and run through the garden program. We will raise them until they grow for a few months and then release them into the wild at Seward Park, 1.1 miles away from Orca.

It was pretty awesome that the kindergarteners were there the moment the eggs arrived and got to see them as they were put into the tank for the first time. They were excited!

They got to color and cut out salmon egg drawings to be placed in the 1st floor hallway as part of a large hallway long comic that will show the life cycle of salmon. The journey begins!
