Salmon Hatchery

Today the captions under each photo have been written by us.  Ms. Lirenman did the typing but we told her what to write.

This is Derek. He guided us through the field trip. He was really nice.  He taught us about salmon.  He was really careful with the stinging nettle.

We saw Fry in cups.  These are salmon when they are small.  We each got our own cup. 

We are walking our salmon to let it go in the river.  We are walking very carefully. We learned that we had to put our hand on the top of the cup so the salmon wouldn't jump out. We learned that we couldn't shake the water.

We are walking down the bridge to the water.

We are about to let the salmon go.

We are letting the salmon go.  Some of the salmon jumped out.

Derek told us the safety rules before we went on a trail walk along the river.

Derek told us that sometimes there are bears around and that they like to hid in trees.  So we took a peek.

These are the bears we found. They didn't scare us they made us laugh.

We walked past some tanks of salmon.  They were jumping a lot.

Then we watched a movie.  After the movie we looked into the fry troughs.

Then we went to see the Coho.  These Coho are free to swim out at any time.  We fed them these little small brown pellets.  When we threw the food in the salmon jumped to the surface to eat the food.  In this picture they are jumping.  Can you see them?

Before we went  home we took a group photo.  As you can see it was a beautiful day.

Thank you to all the parents that drove us and stayed and learned with us.  It was a great field trip.

  1. Thank you for inviting us parents to ths Salmon Hatchery. I surely learned at lot about salmon, stinging nettles and birds too. It goes to show that you are never too old to learn something new!
